footprint

As part of my digital-footprint reduction programme I’ve deleted my YT account, or at least I’ve put it to sleep – it means I keep my favourites but I can’t comment or even ‘like’ anything I watch. Which is a sort of relief; it’s fun to comment and get involved in debate but it doesn’t push me forward in any way.

Metaphorically, getting involved in any online discussion feels like I’ve jumped off the bus and run back along the road to engage in a chat or argument. I’ve stepped off the bus and momentarily stalled progress towards my own destination. Reaching out to strangers to debate issues I can never solve is fun but it’s not healthy. So I can add online discussions to all the other social media I’ve bailed from, or have never engaged with in the first place.

Now to delete my google account…
