Facebook made me really dislike them after the 2016 election meddling and false published narratives. I decided to abandon all social media at some point. All except, WhatsApp, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter … so maybe I didn’t actually abandon it. Better yet, I decided to limit my social media use.
You probably could tell from this blog site and posts that I’d already given up blogging. That’s okay, the more I hone or rehash my skills- the better I’ll become.
My current husband is from a different country and one significant difference in our cultures is how married people use or SHOULD use social media. We’ve been separated for a long period of time waiting for a US visa. He hasn’t had any presence on social media since the day we were married.
Our visa approval has been under administrative processing for as long as I care to say, however during COVID-19, the consulate found time to refuse our request for a second time. Talking about being under pressure- whew!
I learned when a married couple (according to him) is separated (for any reason) need to monitor their behavior and representation. That means they are apart from each other, the other should behave themselves with more caution than they would if together. And limiting your presence on social media is the one way I want to address especially since I learned he now has an IG account. (Where’s an emoji when you need one?)
I have to follow the algorithm outlined in Personal Pandemic.
