Good Time For A Break? What Do Montanans Say About Social Media?
Social Media has become a huge part of our lives. In fact, the average Montanan will spend right around three and a half hours on social media today. When you add it all up, we are certainly spending a whole lot of our time staring at screens.
Of course, I don't have to tell you that whenever something newsworthy or controversial happens in our society, one of the first things that many of us do is go to social media and make our opinions known. Last Friday was the perfect example. When news broke that the United States Supreme Court had overturned Roe V Wade, social media was like a big 'ole dumpster fire.
One thing is for sure, a whole lot of folks have a viewpoint, and they believe it's the right one.
It seems like whenever something like this happens, lots of people tend to get offended when you don't agree with them. This usually results in other folks trying to convince you why you're wrong and they're right, or people will just delete "friends" from their list.
Needless to say, emotions tend to get the best of us in situations like this.
So have you ever taken a break from social media? If so, how did it go? Ironically, we posted that question on our Facebook page to see what people have to say about it. Here are a few of the responses below:
"Amazing! I do it often. Turns out you feel better and have more time." -Bailey
"Yes! I feel less stressed. I don't have to see all the negative posts and people bitchin. I do miss the marketplace and concert announcements but that's it! Plus, so many people on Facebook stalk. I don't like having my biz out there." -Maria
"Yes I love it." -Nita
So what do you think? Once again, we ask if you've ever taken a break from social media. Have you ever thought about maybe taking one? Make sure you vote in our poll below.
