Well for half a day! I aways thought some day might come when social media apps ‘die’ and it did, as of 5pm yesterday evening Facebook, Instagram, Whats app and LinkedIn servers went ‘down’ in the internet world.
It only just got restored at 11:10pm last night!
The world without social media!
Did you have a nice social media detox? Or were you constantly checking the apps anxiously? Or did you scroll your heart out on Twitter (the only app working for me)?
For the first time in ages, I didn’t actually look at my phone till 9pm and thought this is a bit odd? I haven’t received any messages or got any notifications from Instagram!
But this got me thinking why blog’s are SO vital – I’ve mentioned this numerous times on my blog over the years! WordPress didn’t go down for me and I was up until the early hours blogging. Blog’s will never die (unless the server breaks), but social media can die and will die out. Only time will tell…
I saw some old bloggers joke on Twitter about starting up ‘blogspot’ again and I just thought, well, you’re missing out really! What if Instagram deleted all your content and followers you’ve worked so hard to build? But your blog remains intact and well it goes without saying that the blog community is absolutely fantastic! Those old bloggers really are missing out!
I really do think those popular old bloggers have become so obsessed with Instagram and the likes of Tik Tok. But have forgotten the real purpose of helping their followers through their blogs. Oh well, more room for others to grow on the blogsphere.
I still read blogs daily. For advice or reading about someone’s monthly favourites. It’s my down time and I bloody love it!
Before I press publish at 6am this morning, yes I’m up early (had the worst night’s sleep) I just wanted to say that I’m proud of this blog and I don’t think I’ll ever stop blogging. I will forever be grateful for having this little space on the interwebs to pour out my musings.
What are your thoughts on the apps crashing? Did you have a nice social media detox?
