Kimberly Maske-Mertz '14

Wilson Magazine asked Kimberly Maske-Mertz and Marissa Felderg to stay off social media sites for a week. The following are excerpts from the daily journals they kept.
   On Election Day, I found it quite frustrating that I was unable to find full election results for Chambersburg without Facebook or Twitter, especially where it concerned the school board—a race I watched closely. Google proved insufficient and our own local newspaper had not updated anything related to the election since yesterday. To say this was disconcerting would be an understatement. I finally found the results, buried about five pages into my fifth different Google search.
   Already by this point, my attempts to maneuver through everyday activities without the use of social media seem futile at best. And thinking of Lisa’s baby—let’s just say I’ve become a tad twitchy.
