Time to delete Facebook? How to take a social media break

  Time to delete Facebook? How to take a social media break If you are tired of stressing about your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts, this is how you step away.Maybe you've grown concerned about how these companies use your data, following the scandal involving Facebook and political firm Cambridge Analytica.

Taken at face value, the like seemed to represent Durant trashing his former teammate two years after abandoning him OKC.

This, naturally, set off a giddy response from the NBA internet, which loves nothing more than scrutinizing the social-media activity of league All-Stars.

But before fans even had time to revel in how #petty Durant’s like was, the Warriors star had checked in with an explanation: The like was a “total accident,” he told reporters, not a deliberate shot at Russ.

On one hand, that explanation seems about as hard to believe as the age-old “I was hacked” cop-out. On the other hand, could Durant really have been dumb enough to think no one would notice him pulling that move? Or that it wouldn’t blow up into an online frenzy.

Can the Warriors snap out of their malaise?Golden State coasted the last month of the season, much of it without Stephen Curry, and went 7-10 in their final stretch of games. However, the Warriors problems go deeper than a lack of focus and being without Curry — Shaun Livingston has been banged up and not right, Andre Iguodala’s efficiency has dropped this season, and Draymond Green is still shooting just a tick above 30 percent from three. To name just a few things.

This, of course, is not Durant’s first embarrassing online gaffe of the season. Back in September, he defended himself (in third person) against a random Twitter user in a tweet he clearly meant to send from an anonymous burner account. You would think being laughed at by the entire internet-enabled world (including his own teammate Draymond Green) would have taught him to be more careful on social media, but it seems not. On Monday, he was at it again.

Every year around this time, KD’s rival LeBron James goes dark on all his social-media so he can focus on the playoffs. Durant should probably follow LeBron’s lead… and then never bring his accounts bac
