Social media has been part of our lives for almost two decades. However like anything in life it can be abused. That abuse then becomes an addiction. I have to admit I have a love hate relationship with social media. It can be a source of entertainment or superficial connection with people. However, certain people are addicted to it in one way or another. Do you constantly make live videos on Facebook and Instagram? Do you head to your smartphone as soon as you wake up? Do you scroll endlessly down your Twitter timeline or Facebook timeline and lose track of time? Do you check your notifications every second it blows off? Do you say everything that is on your mind every day on Facebook? Do you have to snap all your day's events every day? Do you watch Youtube tutorials all day on your free time? Yeah, you have a problem you are addicted to social media. Remember there was life before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Snapchat, Tumblr, etc Take time to socialize offline. Go to the gym and do not snap your workout. Lol. Create content for Youtube instead of consuming it. Cook that Thai recipe you have been holding off on. Take a walk in the park. There is more to life than social media. Get off the matrix and tune into 3D reality. This is all coming from a recovering social media addict. You will thank me later.
