“Social media is a digital plantation. You are either among those who profit from it. Or among the fruits that make the profits.
So, in which camp do you belong?
Let's look at Facebook as an example. It makes at least $20 off each user per year. Considering it has over 2 billion active users, that's some serious money.
It employs dozens of Ph.D. psychologists to figure out how to keep you coming back. How to keep you scrolling down. How to get you addicted to the system. Because that’s where the money is.
But you don't need that kind of bondage. It's why I'll share with you a solution so effective at freeing yourself from this digital prison cell
But first, why are you even on social media?
You might say you want to keep up with family and friends. Or to relieve boredom.
But that's not what happens.
Think about it, the last time you saw a picture of your friend on a beach, how did you feel?
Weren't you depressed? Didn’t you feel like a failure?
Research is clear that most people are flooded with negative emotions just after using social media.
But this is just one example. There are a handful of such negative emotions.
Consider all the hours you waste on social media. Enough to engage in meaningful conversations with your kids. Or call your partner and tell them 5 reasons they are the sweetest thing in the world. Or start working on that project you have been sidelining for months.
You don't need to be among those who acknowledge that social media is ruining their lives. You need to be among those who take action.
And I've got the solution for you. It's called Social Media Rehab, a book meant to help you break free from social media.
It's based on studies and lessons I observed while recovering from skin-deep addictions myself, be it smoking cigarettes or using social media.
It's time to live a happy life according to your own definition. It's time to build relationships with the people that matter to you.”
