I've been trying to minimise my time on social media as a whole, from 1.5 hours on avg a day on IG to now 45 minutes. Although I don't necessarily think that IG is a negative platform, because I believe any platform can be negative, it's all in your hands.
I've been doing this so that I can get a clearer perspective of what it means to share things and why people share certain things.
Do I want to share every bit of my life on IG? What do I want to share? What can I share to be a better influence? And I think everyone needs to think about that.
I would hate to think that if I do share something on my IG, it will be like a life update to my closest friends. I've been a victim of this many times, whereby I discover life changing updates of a friend through social media; and those people are out of my life now.
