No good comes of giving your ex space in your head – especially not of the digital kind. It’s hard enough going through the getting over it phase without prolonging the agony. It’s simply a big no no to keep your ex on your Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram - or any other platform – post break up. This is why you should unfollow, un-friend, block or mute when your relationship ends.
One of the key reasons not to follow your ex on social media is that if you cannot see what he is getting up to and who is he is getting it up with, then you won’t have the opportunity to feel sad or jealous about the difference between his new life and your new life. It does no good to either of you if you become obsessed with stalking each other from afar and not actually moving on with your own lives. The best way to avoid this is to delete him from your social media platforms.
