Isolation Photo Project, Day 130

I have littered the InterWeb with the carcasses of social media/social sharing accounts. My accounts are/were much older than most. I joined Flickr in 2004, Twitter, and Facebook in 2007. Last year I deleted most of the cruft, including 500px, Tumblr, etc. that I was no longer using. I kept Flickr because it still has a community even if it’s a community I interact with infrequently.

I am bucking the trend of most people and keeping my accounts on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Now that Google+ is dead, Facebook is still the only places on the web to connect with in-real-life friends and family. Additionally, Twitter and Facebook (and WordPress Reader) are still the primary source of the traffic to this 17-year-old WordPress website.

I’ve found that people are people regardless of the platform, so exiting Facebook and Twitter is pointless.


The images in this post bear no relation to each other, but they were all taken on today. It's a day in the life.

It’s Thursday.

    I quit Twitter because there was no connection there amid all the outrage. There's just as much outrage on FB, but at least I have some level of connection there with other people.

      I think too many people were on the bandwagon of "dump social media".
