It’s Unfollow Friday!!

Take this opportunity to unfollow any accounts that aren’t serving you anymore. 

Our personal enjoyment of social media heavily depends upon who we choose to allow in our feeds. If you’re not enjoying your feed or end a scroll-session feeling bad about yourself, it may be time to re-evaluate who you’re following.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to your profile (button with your pic on it in the bottom right corner).
  2. Click on the “following” button in your profile at the top of the page.
  3. Scroll down the list and hit the “following” button next to the profiles you want to unfollow. (The button will turn blue and say “Follow.”)

The thought of unfollowing may make you feel uneasy. I completely get it. Unfollowing somehow feels like you’re being disloyal or – at worst – a betrayal.

I can’t speak for everyone, but I don’t ever check to make sure certain people are following me, much less check to see who dropped me. In other words, don’t worry. They won’t even notice.

If you unfollow some accounts, let me know how it felt. Weird? Scary? Good?

Especially if you reduce the amount of accounts you follow dramatically, I’m not responsible for the results. You may start enjoying your feed again and spend MORE time scrolling.

Is that a risk you’re willing to take? šŸ˜‰
