The purge: What happens when you unfollow everyone on the Internet

The purge: What happens when you unfollow everyone on the Internet:

We’re among the first generations expected to maintain connections with every single person we’ve ever met, thanks to the Internet. The weight of our swollen social networks can be super stressful, let alone a distraction from knowing who you want to focus your time on.

No longer feeling like I had hundreds of relationships to figure out how to maintain, I felt like I had room in my life for new people, and had new energy to go out and meet them.

Sounds to me like the exact opposite outcome of what social networks were designed to facilitate. Or is it that social media is just more successful at what it does than we’d like?
