Have you noticed that Ed Sheeran has been MIA lately?  He recently took to Instagram to share why he hasn’t been as active on social media in recent years. The singer posted a video explaining that “turbulent things” in his personal life kept him from sharing much online.  “So I realized I haven’t been that engaged in my social media or my fanbase online over the past couple of years,” Sheeran said to start the video, “and the things that have been posted on this account might have gotten a bit boring. I’m sorry. It’s my fault.”

He went on to share that he’s “had some turbulent things been happening in my personal life” and “didn’t really feel like being online and pretending to be something I’m not, when I wasn’t feeling like that.” Sheeran told fans that “things are looking up,” and he plans to start posting more “weird sh*t” on his account.

Do you post more or less on social media when life gets heavy?
