Most social media addicts can spend hours scrolling mindlessly reading news and updates that have no meaning at all. They can be a form of entertainment, but in reality, most of the things shared through on social media will not do any good to your life. #neqconcept #photography #addiction #addict #socialmediaaddict #socialmediaaddiction #portifolio #thecalling #ghanaphotography #facebook #instagram #tweeter #snapchats #whatapp #socialmedia
Social media addiction is a term that is often used to refer to someone who spends too much time on social media like Facebook and Twitter or other forms of social media. As a result, it affects the person’s daily life. If you want to know whether you are a social media addict, look at how you live your life and how you spend your time. Social media addiction can be considered a habitual disorder and the signs can be identified from what you do each day.

(Part 3 of 3) We need to quit thinking #reality is seen through our screens, literally in a #box , on a tiny screen. This small box is no different than the boxes we put others in, expecting the opportunity to judge their every move so we can try to make them #perfect . (A majority of you will only look at these photos and say WTF and move on, which only encourages that statement.) Perfection is bullshit and unachievable and this is not reality. Live in the moment (I say as I am learning to do so myself). Because otherwise you're setting yourself up for disappointment, when it hits you, and you realize the #glamorous life isn't always great. Don't sell your soul for a couple of likes and don't put people in a box, including yourself. Break the fuck out of that box and do whatever the fuck you want, and live it away from your screen!! This is an #addiction . To #RaiseAwareness for things you believe in through media is one thing. But to influence a negative and unrealistic outlook on life is another. I want to raise different types of awareness through #art and #photography , and I hope you will take the #journey with me. #confrontation
I’m gonna be honest here guys. I do have a problem with Instagram addiction and it’s not healthy. I’ve been using it in a away to hide from my feelings and self-sabotage. I was feeling pretty helpless about this until I spoke to my Mum (Mums know the answers right?). . This weekend I took the app off my phone and spent some time researching social media addiction. Of course it’s on the rise as these apps grow. What was most worrying for me was that it was such a habit that I felt I couldn’t stop. . It might sound dramatic but I really needed to take action on this. Also to uncover why I’m ignoring how I feel but immersing myself in mass information overwhelm. . From now on I’ll post and interact with you guys once a day then come off of it. As embarrassing as this feels to share this I also think I’m not alone in this??? So many of us say we hate all the time wasted scrolling. But we also have the power to curb it if we want to do and get on top of it. It’s been serving me but now it’s definitely not. Let me know your thoughts on this 💛
Denzel Washington speaks on the effects of social media. Real talk from the O.G. I know firsthand what he’s talking about; I was off the social media grid for two years, having become bored and disillusioned with the banality of it all, as well as my own growing dependency on like chasing and follower building. However, now back on Instagram, I’m posting daily and checking in much more frequently. I realize, to ‘zel’s point, that is a conscious choice. I like sharing with the world the music, movies, and pop culture tidbits that I enjoy, and am not ashamed to admit that I do get that sense of pride and validation when I get likes and comments on my posts. To quote Breaking Bad’s Walter White, "I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really -- I was alive." I think if we recognize that social media should be an extension of our true selves, as opposed to a false image that we create in order to get other people to like us, that will keep us healthy and grounded. Self-awareness and self-reflection is the key. #repost credit to @CBNNews for producing this insightful segment. #thestylesreport #denzelwashington #denzel #CBNNews #socialmedia #socialmediaaddiction #realtalk #droppinscience #og #originalgangster
We need to wakeup and end this #socialmediaaddicton . Because many of us are addicted and won't admit it. Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya on how social media is ripping soceity apart. It literally is a point now where I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how soceity works. That is truly where we are. I would encourage all of you as the future leaders of the world to really internalize how important this is. If you feed the beast, that beast will destroy you. If you push back on it we have a chance to control it. It is a point in time where people need to hard break from some of these tools, and the things that you rely on. The short-term dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how soceity works. No civil discourse, no cooperation, misinformation, mistruth. #chamathpalihapitiya #socialmediaaddiction #phonedownlifeup #digitalwellness #nomophobia #phonedown #wakeup #instagram #facebook Repost @kodie_official
Social media addiction is real. Take it from me. I used to be on my social media apps for 6-7 hours a day scrolling, liking, sharing, posting, matching, following other people's lives, comparing my life with others and being narcissistic. Long periods of hard work with my job and my music career had me tired and social media became my escape. The screen world felt so much better than the real world because everything in the screen world was so filtered and refined that I could forget about my problems. The likes i got for my posts gave me a boost. It was like a drug and I needed my doses several times a day. Sometimes when I didn't get many likes, I got angry and faked something just to make people think that my life was wonderful. For example, uploading pics from old shows to make everybody think that I was on tour living the life, that my career was doing good or a pic of myself with a cheezy comment or some shit like that just to get likes. Little did I know that all those instant gratifications were releasing so much dopamine in my brain that my body couldn't keep up with it. I was addicted and Instead of working on my inner self I spend most of my time working on my outer looks trying to impress people. That put me in a vicious circle. I started mishandling my health, my economy and my relationship with my family and friends. I lost my focus, stopped participating in social activities, burned myself out and got depressed. It wasn't until I seeked help that I finally managed to find my digital balance. So why am I doing this? Why this song/music video? Why all these posts about social media addiction? Simply because I want to raise awareness about this addiction. I know a lot of people have this addiction without knowing and many people are living in denial. You won't believe how many people still laugh at me when I tell them about this. These tools could be addictive if not used right. If you don't balance your digital life and your real life you will get addicted. Trust me when I tell you this 💚 #nomophobia #phoneaddiction #socialmediaaddiction #digitalwellness #phonedown #lifeup #nomofobi
