The Pros And Cons Of Quitting Social Media
Citing the stress of engaging with sites like Facebook and Instagram, many users deactivate their social media accounts for their emotional well-being, while others enjoy these platforms as a way of connecting with friends and family. Here are some pros and cons of quitting social media:
- All the colors, brightness of a world unimpeded by Amaro filtering
Interactions with colleagues limited to eight hours per day
One less barrier between you and friendly strangers on the bus looking to make conversation
No longer bound by prohibitive monthly user fees
Makes it easier to appreciate all the other organic sources of stress and insecurity life has to offer
Only chance to lower Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth by roughly .00000000001 percent
Concrete proof that you are a fascinating iconoclast
- Gradual loss of hashtagging, geotagging skills
Having to send out invites to your upcoming improv show via courier
Potential to become dangerously overconfident without a constant, direct comparison of your life to everyone else’s
Endless pining for ex-lover limited to pictures saved on hard drive
Unreliable offline metrics as to which House Of Cards character you are
Harder to keep in touch with family and friends’ idealized facsimiles
