I’ve been enjoying my break from social media. Not reading updates has meant more time for reading news and I’ve recently started trialling a daily online newspaper. Each morning I’m informed that a new edition awaits and I eagerly start downloading to see what the world is waking up to. I rarely buy a printed newspaper but it probably takes me just as long to find the section or page I’m interested in reading as it does to download a section via the newspaper app. I like the fact that I can select what to read although the ads do interfere with swiping through pages at times. I watched a video today which was included as part of an article. One quick tap and the video sprung into life and this really made the text feel real and alive. I wonder if I’ll still have time to read the news once my Facebook fast is up? Also less recycling which is another bonus.
