It would seem that young people are realizing that giving up social media can actually make you happier. Not being tied to your computer or phone all day checking for updates and messages gives you more free time for stuff like video games and porn. What?!? You know you were thinking the same thing.

I made a New Year resolution to cut down on my social media use. After doing this I started to ask, why am I using it at all? That’s why I’ve quit various platforms over the past year: Snapchat in November and Facebook in June. I’ve never really had WhatsApp or Twitter. I mainly used Facebook at university, for organising events and meet-ups, but I’ve gradually started to realise how pervasive is it. I also feel uncomfortable with the amount of time I used to spend on it.
