MAN-E-NEWS// “Goodbye Social Media, Hello Freedom!”- Lunartik breaks free…

 

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram- all amazing platforms for showcasing work, consuming art and networking, but do we ever consider how much they eat into our everyday lives? Tired of the constant distractions, Matt Jones aka Lunartik is one such artist that has decided to do away with (for the time being!) all but one social media stream, You Tube. Instead of making announcements through Twitter and Facebook, Matt has decided to focus on a newsletter that will be sent out once a month, featuring a film that will be posted on You Tube alongside exclusive pics and info from the Lunartik blog. Head over to the site now and sign up- Matt has promised that the first newsletter will feature an exclusive peak of the Lunartik Mini Tea series 2!

“I’ve been dreaming about this day forever, Its the start of a new era in my life. I’ve loved following you all and had lots of fun on Facebook and Twitter, but its all become far too distracting for me. I think it’s best if I just get my head into my work and switch to using one social stream which is going to be even more fun, as its You Tube!”
