Kelly Evans is one of the finest female journalists in the world today. Currently working as the co-anchor of the show Closing Bell, Evans worked in CNBC’s Europe London headquarters for a year before she moved to New Jersey.
Evans is one of those celebrities you wouldn’t find anywhere on social media. Her departure from the social media was a big deal. Sometime in 2016, Kelly announced that she has deactivated her Twitter account. According to Kelly, deactivating her Twitter account severed an eight-year relationship that had become a big part of her professional and personal life. Nonetheless, the CNBC anchor pointed out that it was a step in the right direction. She said she felt lost in endless spools of social media.
“…All the while emails by the thousands were piling up, phone calls were getting lost in the mix, and messages from the most important people in my life were getting drowned out in the din. I was more responsive to comments on Instagram than to my own closest friends and family.
“I shut down social media because I needed to shut out online distractions and engage with the people, issues, and work right in front of me. I started reading the newspaper first thing daily instead of following the news all day on social media — and I’ve never felt better informed,” she explained.
She deactivated her Facebook page and Instagram accounts the previous year. To her, it’s not cool for social media to enlarge our impersonal connections while it is bringing apart the closer, trickier, and more personal ones.
