Is it time to turn our cameras off at work? The reality of Zoom fatigue and how to combat it


Chances are, if you’re someone who began working at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, you’ve found yourself sitting on a Zoom video call when you didn’t want to be on camera.

People have been voicing their frustrations with video conferences on social media throughout the pandemic. Writer Roxane Gay tweeted, “I miss calls where I don’t need to show my face. It doesn’t need to be a Zoom. It just doesn’t.”

“Nothing makes me happier than hopping in a Zoom meeting and seeing everyone with their cameras off,” Twitter user @hnkwaku wrote.

There are even web tools, like Zoom Escaper, that allow users to self-sabotage their call, giving them the perfect excuse to leave their virtual meeting.
