Why I'll stop trying to quit all social media and that's a good thing

My latest attempt at a long social media break has failed, but I don't mind because I learned something this time, perhaps because I read Jaron Lanier's Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now and had to think about why I wasn't convinced.

My current answer: Social media is part of modern society. For most of us, it's better to work to become good citizens than hermits. I expect I'll still take the occasional day or week off as the electronic version of a camping trip, but I'll quit trying to quit.
