Is taking a break from social media becoming a new trend nowadays? Stars like Zayn Mallik, Kendall Jenner and Ed Sheeran have all decided to take the social media silence vow. Exactly a year ago today, Ed Sheeran announced that he wanted to stop “seeing the world through a screen” and swore to take a break from social media.
This was the last thing Ed Sheeran posted before taking his year off social media. “Hello all. I am taking a break from my phone emails and all social media for a while, I have had such an amazing ride over the last 5 years but I find myself seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes so I am taking this opportunity of me not having to be anywhere or do anything to travel the world and see everything I missed. To my family and friends, if you love me you will understand me buggering off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd album is on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far. See you all next autumn, and thank you for being amazing.”
As much as fans understood the reason Sheeran felt the need to take some time off, it was extremely upsetting to most fans. Thankfully, he has made his return to social media and fans are oh so happy! It also just so happens to be that the day Sheeran decided to revive his social media account, his BFF Taylor Swift was celebrating her birthday…coincidence? So far he has given a little teaser by tweeting a picture of a bright blue square while changing his Twitter and Instagram profile picture and header to the same blue color. Looks like Ed Sheeran is on a fast track back into the social media world!
