Getting Out of the Social Media Mess
Manton Reece, founder of Micro.blog, has some smart thoughts about social media and owning your own digital presence.

I’m seriously thinking of dropping out of the “social network mess.” I like Twitter for the immediacy of it, but I don’t need it. I don’t really post on Instagram or Facebook anymore. I can remove myself from those services and not miss out on a single thing.
Well, I’d probably miss Twitter.
