  • It's been months i uninstalled instagram and twitter. But i used fb so much.....

  • I recently deleted Snapchat and instagram because that’s what I find myself looking at and comparing myself to others. Seeing who’s “happier”, who’s living a better life etc. I kept Facebook, Twitter and TH-vision because honestly I don’t use them as much and people don’t try to glorify their lives as much on these apps. I also want to see an increase in my productivity. I’ll probably re download them one day but for now I will see how everything goes!

  • This is why life in the 1980's was so good! No social media! Glad i grew up then & i never was really big on social media. Great book that all young adults who grew up with social media need to read. Today's society portrays the use of social media 24/7 as being normal when nothing could be further from the truth.

  • People are giving YT very bad rep. If there wasn't YT, I would never have learned the past 2 foreign languages, neither have the interest in languages. I would never be interested in philosophy. I would never become an atheist, because I would still be indoctrinated and blind (best decision of my life I tell ya'). I would never have been interested in cooking, all around kitchen skills. I would never have been interested in taking care of leather and making it last for as long as it can. I would never have been interested in fashion, in classical grooming, the manner's of a gentleman. I would never have been an open minded person. I would never have developed my rhetoric to a point of being able to persuade people and even improve my social skills, yes.. the impossible improve social skills on a social network. I would never have been interested in politics, in global issues. I would just be a sheep. And so much more.. There is so much you can gain here, but you have to use it as your own slave and not be a slave.

  • Peer pressure is what makes social media. It's what makes you join, it's what makes you post and it's what makes you depressed. If you think you need social media because you do not belong if you don't have it, I can guarantee that you will be depressed within no-time. You cannot have the life people show they have. Because that life does not exist. They only post the 10% of their life that's good enough to share. Formula for depression. Side note; I don't consider TH-vision social media as to me it's a form of entertainment (like a movie or a book). No peer pressure, I don't feel the urge to become a movie-star or TH-visionr. Just wasting valuable time :)

  • I haven't had social media for about a year now and I apparently only spend up to 25min on my phone per day. I've also noticed how much other people use their phones, especially in public places, and usually to avoid interacting with strangers. Which is incredibly disheartening.

  • I quit social media about 6 months ago and I will never go back to using them again. I didn't spend a lot of time on them but felt that they affected my mood and made me feel down and anxious. One thing I've come to realise today is that (close) friends completely rely on a page like Facebook to tell them when everyone's birthday is. Today is my birthday. I would've gotten lots of birthday wishes on Facebook. In the real world - off social media - I received 3 birthday wishes. It's not a lot, but they came from people who still think for themselves instead of letting Facebook do the thinking for them. They thought my birthday important enough to make a note of it in their diaries. And that's worth more than a 1000 social media messages. :-)

  • I deleted instagram off my phone for 8 months and just recently reinstalled it and to be honest i didnt miss it at all and even now its not on the first page of my phone. If anything youtube is one of the biggest apps that take up most of my time and second would be Facebook, mainly for the funny videos.

  • Is it just me but I get super anxious and distressed from social media nowadays, mostly in the last year, because I feel like I can’t keep up with ALL the content that’s being put out. Soo many videos on TH-vision, posts on Twitter, posts on Reddit. My heads spinning!!

  • I tried it and went 11 days. I would watch TONS of TH-vision like literally all day but I didn't use very much of other social media. I work a lot of hours but I also have a lot of down time during work but that means that I couldn't do much outside of work. But I ended up exercising a bit more. I also read 3 really interesting books.

  • I deleted Facebook 2 years ago as I felt that the toxicity in that platform was affecting my spiritual growth. It was the best thing I did that year as I suddenly had so much time on my hands. For the first few days, I honestly didn't know what to do with the time I had. I read more books, spent more time meeting up with friends and still had time to idle and reflect. I didn't delete Instagram as I work in PR and I use it for work (I had to manage a few client's instagram pages) and my photography and music. Taking public transport, i felt left out as everyone around me were glued to their phones, something I didn't realize until then. Fast forward a few months, I spent even less time in Instagram as I felt that I now enjoy being in the present with the things and people I'm surrounded with, be it people watching, catching up with friends or just stopping to look at the birds and flowers around me. Facebook friends who noticed my disappearance had to contact me via calls and Whatsapp and I always initiate a meetup to catch up instead of reading each others feeds. It doesn't have to be all your social media - just one you spent the most time in. You can see the big difference. And in my case, as time passes by, you spend even less time in other platforms because you'd feel that it's way better with physical human interactions than through a phone screen. More memories are made that way. Try it! :)

  • i just deleted snapchat and instagram

  • I already didnt use any social media except WA (since i use this for my business) for more than 2 years. And i think its bring more positive to my life, i feel more free and have more time in my life.
