Someone I am close to recently deleted their Facebook; and despite having recently started an account on MeWe, it would appear they deleted that account also.
This is not an isolated incident, though.
Conservative Americans now feel entirely alien and unwelcome online. Years of being maligned, manipulated, and censored on the biggest platforms have suddenly kicked into overdrive. And a lot of us are left trying to recalculate the cost-benefit on what if any time, energy, and attention we invest online.
This may well be the death of our social media lives. And yet, if we turn from those places and begin investing socially IRL with renewed vigor, that may be all for the best in the short, medium, and long run.
“Even the wise cannot see all ends,” but God knows. And for our part, we must figure out how best to spend what has been entrusted to us.
