Social Media can be fun, but what about addiction?
There are indeed a lot of different social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many more. They each have their own features which allows you to share things that you are experiencing in life. These platforms can be fun to use, but what about addiction?
Various Social Media Platforms are made to get you addicted to it, to stay with them, and invite your friends to get them more users and more popular. Social Media can be helpful, but when it starts to use you, its a problem. If you aren't paying, you are the product. Once you become addicted, they use you as their product. They show you ads based on what you search, they convince you to purchase services from them, and trying to quit social media will be as hard as trying to quit smoking cigarrete's.
Now, it isn't too late to stop your addiction if you are already addicted. There are some steps you should consider taking to break free from your social media addiction. Stop using social media in the morning, and during most of your free time. This makes you want to check it more, if you see something you like. When you see something you like, you get more interested, leading you to more interesting things, as this is part of some social media company's marketing strategy. Avoid social media while eating, or while doing your business in the bathroom.
Don't use too many social media platforms, you will get addicted to ALL of them! Yeah, that's even worse. Notifications from social media should be turned off so you don't check your phone for each new notification you receive. For every new like you get on a social media post, it makes you excited and encourages you to make more posts, causing you to get more addicted.
Social Media can be fun, but if you use it too much and get fished into their marketing, you will get addicted extremely easily.
