3 Reasons a Person Might Want to Shut down a Social Media Account
1. You never use it and, realistically, never will in the near future. (This could be due to a lack of desire or time.)
2. You can created too many accounts on the same social media site and can’t effectively update or manage them all. (Example: You have multiple twitter accounts and can’t keep them all updated.)
3. You can created too many account on different social media sites and can’t effectively update or manage them all. (Example: You have accounts on facebook, twitter, linkedin, pinterest, tumblr, instagram, flickr, etc. and are not able to effectively use them all.)
