What will Happen if We Stop Using Social Media

WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and on and on and on. . . .

We, as humans, use social media a lot! We may be selfie-consiuous or send a tweet every 5 minutes!! Social media really controls us these days, doesn’t it? But, what if we just stopped using it? Like, no, not even allow to touch your iPhone or Samsung. Ok, now that’s going too far 🙂

 

I’m just asking: what if we just stopped using it?

We would connect with nature a lot more. Without social media (including messages) most of us humans would have more to do in our free time. We would go out, and actual visit the lake, forest, and mountains. We would have a closer grasp of nature itself, not just when you read about nature, experiencing it is 1,000 times better.

We would talk to people in person. With the advance in technology, people are used to talking to people with messages, emails, and social media. Talking to people in person means getting to know them better. Plus, you can’t make lifetime memories with a person facing the computer.

Without social media taking up free time, we would have more time to do other things. Like taking a bike ride, drawing, and organizing the closet (which are things need to do) would have you discover new talents like riding a bike at 45 mph, drawing a scene from a cute coffee shop, and organizing clothes.

You’d probably be happier. If losing 5 Instagram followers ruins your day or a nasty comment about your glasses is bothering you, this just backs up the reason why social media isn’t all fun and games. People who use social media too much make getting new follows so much of a priority, that if they don’t complete that goal, they end up buying followers or post obsessively to reach the goal. Staying away from social media just makes the problem go away, because there is no cause of the problem.

If obsessively being on social media changes us for the better, then maybe I’ll cancel my Twitter because 1: No one really follows me or likes my posts 2: I don’t really need it. Although social media has many advantages, it can cause many problems also. As someone said, small things can have big impacts.

  1. An interesting concept…I wouldn’t say I’d addicted to social media in the sense that I obsess over it and invest too much of myself in it, but I do use it a lot and do struggle without it. As someone who’s rather shy, social media has given me an outlet to be myself and be more outgoing as well as connect me to the world. As a blogger and as a teen, social media is so important to me and I’m so glad technology is as advanced as it is because it really is spectacular.
    I do think that maybe I need to get off the internet a bit more and interact with real life people more, but at the same time, social media makes me happy and I do love some aspects, so I don’t really think I’d be a whole lot happier if I stopped using it.

    1. In the 80’s , kids would go outside and play, but in this century we are all on our phones and computers. It’s pretty sad. I am routing to get out more and play outside, instead of looking at a screen.
