Supposedly they delete all your info after 30 days but there's no way to find out unless you log back in, which I suppose would start the whole 30 day thing all over again. Somehow I doubt that it's really ever deleted. It's too much fun watching Trump get made a fool of on a daily basis to stay away from the news.
never done the FB thing.. or any other form of 'social media' - I suppose tSwill counts?

tRCMB might, too, until they decided to squash free speech.. can't be hangin' around any place that controls free speech.

Being willfully ignorant isn’t a strategy. Yes, unplug. Yes, remember what’s important and prioritize your actual real world life. But considering how many important things are happening in our country today, like this very day, I think walking away from having that knowledge is irresponsible. And don’t tell me it doesn’t matter, because nothing changes. Because that’s just not true and is the mantra of those who want an excuse for doing nothing.

Permanently unplugging would be irresponsible, but I feel like taking a brief "vacation" every now and then is probably healthy.

I'm on my laptop all day sitting in the kitchen. I'm in the same boat as WBH, I have to look around and go to different places. My wife likes to watch the news. Only thing is that we don't have cable, so need to stream everything. Although I could sit with CNN or whatever on all day, I don't, and after about an hour I think it starts repeating on the streaming channels on PlutoTV.
I will admit that I get busy at times so I can fall a day behind or so.

just because our views of 'healthy' might mean that to us as individuals, doesn't mean it will work for everyone. Of course, if asked, I would provide what I believe to be a positive personal construct, but if someone wants to unplug permanently, cool. Good for them.

It’s a benefit of your white male privilege to be able to unplug from all that’s happening in our country and world right now. There are a whole lot of Black Americans and other POC who wish they had it so good.

The thing is, I don't watch the news, or frequent any of the national news sites. I haven't watched CNN in roughly 18.9 - 19 years. Twitter does bring more aggravation than it should. I really like it for sports stuff but it's too hard to ignore the rest. And I like my Rivals sub because Comp is awesome and there are some great insiders there but it's also very frustrating. Way too much Ddeererreeeerrrrr virus safe, football good! derrrrrrr derrr

I really should just work on getting rid of Twitter.

PBS news is probably fine. Probably a good resource to find out San Francisco is looking like Mars. But that is like giving an alcoholic one beer. Cold turkey. One week. Come on. Let's do it.

Chew on this, Steve:
If you turn over the “w” in mouthwash, then add an “s” in front of it, then move that newly created word in front of the original word, you change mouthwash to smashmouth.

By agreeing, it means you can’t check the weather forecast before golfing on those days. Hope you don’t get wet.

And we have an answer: Bill Maher is the "chugging mouthwash" of news/social media.
