Real talk, if you are not using Pocket idk what you are doing at this point.
It is an app that you use to save articles from any website to read later, and honestly it is so helpful for my mental health and not burning out and I’m going to explain why:
1) it lets me decide not to engage with an article or subject right away, but doesn’t leave me with the feeling of guilt after ignoring it because I am saving it for later for times when I have enough spoons for it.
2) I get to keep informed without being overwhelmed by going through all of the news, instead curating it so it is articles that interest me/something I can engage with.
3) sharing articles that interest you with friends, which is honestly my dream and is not facilitated to its fullest potential on any other social media.
4) keeping articles in your back Pocket (see what I did there?) so you have the information right away in a debate. It even lets you tag things so its more easily sorted. For example if I wanted to debate prison reform with some one and wanted to site some facts I have like 20 articles in my prison reform tag to go show them.
Honestly Pocket is my favourite app and more people need to get on it.

Hey, this is my post and yall should follow my pocket because most of it is queer history.
Also it syncs across devices and the app can be used offline, so you can even load articles on your phone with the home wifi and then you’ve got some reading for the road.
