The harmful effects of social media:

Zuckerberg shtoyle.
Social media are like medicine for an imaginary disease, but with real and likely side effects; e.g. addiction, anxiety, anger, self-harm, misinformation, spying, etc. Facebook, Inc., which owns Instagram and WhatsApp, exploits its uninformed users for profit. Their platform incentivizes misinformation and disinformation which manipulate people into unprecedented worldwide needless discord. Furthermore, social media are engineered to be highly addictive, and they cause anxiety because other people's looks and lives seem much better than they truly are. Sounds exaggerated? It barely scratches the surface… Check the sources below and stop being a slave to your screen. Choose life: quit facebook.

Why quit social media?

Misinformation is a weapon...

Choose life.
