We now spend at least 1 hour and 7 minutes a day on our social networks—that’s nearly 400 hours each year of our personal time, time that could be spent writing a book, learning to tap dance, or cooking a delightful dinner (without broadcasting it to the entire world). On October 16, 2014, we’re stealing our time back! We’ve joined forces with Marc Hartzman, author of our Anti-Social Network Journal, for Knock Knock’s first-ever Social Media Blackout Day!
For 24 hours, we’re logging off all social networks. Can YOU go a whole day without Liking, Tweeting, or Pinning? We challenge you!
HOW TO TAKE PART:
- Change your profile picture to this image:
- Update your status to: “October 16 is #SocialMediaBlackoutDay and I’m unplugging for 24 hours. Join me!”
- If you think a friend needs a social break as well, tag them!
- Now here’s the real challenge—actually follow through. Stay off social media for 24 hours. We’ve dared you.
