Social Media Solidarity: Should You Ever “Miss” Social Media?

​As I’m writing this blog post I’m sitting on a train without an Internet connection. I work as a social media account manager, so it’s always fairly important for me to be able to get online and make any changes or posts that my clients request. Yet I am sitting here very content to be disconnected from the world for a while.

As I’m writing this blog post I’m sitting on a train without an Internet connection. I work as a social media account manager, so it’s always fairly important for me to be able to get online and make any changes or posts that my clients request. Yet I am sitting here very content to be disconnected from the world for a while.

The current constant connectedness of the world is a blessing and a curse. You can always be aware of what’s going on and never miss a beat, but sometimes it’s also hard to take a step back and really have those relaxing moments to yourself. Looking out the window and watching the scenery fly by my while I can take a moment to just collect my thoughts is perfect.

This raises the question of whether or not the influx of technology into our lives is good. In my opinion, the answer (while not a very good one) is that it’s both good and bad. It’s great for staying connected with everyone in your life, but it’s bad when it comes time to get away. Recently I went on vacation to the Poconos and I still found myself checking my email regularly throughout the day to make sure I didn’t miss any important emails from my clients. The only true time I felt I could relax was when the normal business hours were over and I could take a step back from my work.

Social media marketing is a business that never sleeps, but humans are a species that need to sleep. I do my best to keep up with all of my clients’ requests, but at a time like this, sitting on a train disconnected, it feels good to get away. Once I arrive at my destination I know it begins all over again.
