Thomas Rhett is now openly discussing social media and his decision to stop using it.
In a conversation with Bobby Bones on the Bobbycast Podcast, Rhett shared that he quit social media because feedback affected his decision-making.
He said he relied on views to measure his success. “I haven’t been on social media since January,” Rhett told Bones. “It was getting to a point where, I mean, it sounds super cliché to say it, but it was just taking up so much of my time, and I was finding so much of my worth in a post. And especially since all the algorithm stuff changed, you started to be like, ‘Man, I used to post videos, and they’d get a million views, no doubt.’ And then you start to see this thing of like, ‘Okay, my views are starting to go down. Does that mean that I am starting to suck more?’”
