Questions about our formats

Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin, we test, we publish, we vary...

We're having a bit of fun. But let's face it, it's not our thing!

🤯 The hyper snacking of news, the frustration of visibility, the constraint of short, dynamic and hypnotising content, we're not crazy about it.

So we get hooked, probably because 'we have to' and we find a little satisfaction in it; but the mental and workload it represents is colossal.

What's more, there's a lot of soul-searching about favouring outrageous scrolling and getting into a routine that doesn't suit you (often to the detriment of other things).

No one has ever woken up one morning and said "gosh, what a shame! I should have spent more time on TikTok yesterday!"

No, that doesn't happen.

On the other hand: "I should have analysed that interview from that angle", "continued reading that book" or "been in the moment of that conversation", "written in that notebook" - that does happen.

And then we remembered that we liked writing, that we liked spending time with people, having serious, funny, deep, heavy and light conversations, and that we liked having the time to do it.

And we often run out of time.

So why shouldn't our digital practices embody this?

So we thought the newsletter was a good format.

For the moment we're going to mix the two: networks and letters, but in the long term we'll probably decide to keep just the latter 👀

We're keen to ask your opinion on the subject, so there's a form just below to tell us about your relationship with networks, what you'd like to see, and if you'd like us to publish your verbatims.

This newsletter will be a new kind of epistolary exchange, one for people who want to travel, find out about organisations that are changing the world, keep an eye on things, speak out, take the time to do so and keep in touch 😊

To get an idea of how much time you spend on the networks, you can look in your phone's settings. The tutorial for Android and Apple.

You can also add a limit that you set yourself, as a matter of conscience (which is what we did, but we still often exceed it).

📈 The data corner: French people spend an average of 32 hours in front of their screens every week. That's (and watch out for the shock) almost 1/5th of the weekly time or just under a third of the time awake, says this report.

And an average of 3 hours a day on social networks.
