I tend to go through spells of binging and then not getting time to be on here at all that I enjoy the time I do get to be on here.

Was something that the bester half and I were chatting about on New Years eve. She spends too much time on Instagram and me on Twitter, not posting or anything just following others. So we both decided to cut back and try to do when we are alone, i.e. I check twitter for 10 mins on the train and then book out.

I do most of my posting on here during work time (shhh don't tell the boss) so rarely be on in the evening and weekend which I see as family time, either with the kids or me and the missus.

Similar to myself. I dont post much on twitter these days & tend to use it for sports & news mostly. I pretty much ignore FB & really should just go & delete my account. Instagram is used for putting up family pics only & I only allow family access (family living abroad etc) anyway. So as I said its mostly posting here in this forum in terms of interacting

Either way will be cutting back in the evenings from now on. If nothing else it might help me sleep better too!

I have a Facebook account that I don't use anymore. Think I posted one update last year.

This social media downtime is great, but don't forget your old chums here in the Christmas forum, okay?!

Small update about half way through the month and already less than 400 posts to go to beating last years target for January. Seems doable

Suspect we'll smash that out of the park. In fact I predict we'll beat it by 70ish posts.

IIRC we usually keep a decent total for January what with us still winding down from the festivities. Assume it drops off for the summer, but was wondering when do we usually start seeing a dramatic drop off and a below average monthly total?
