Quit social media

This video is going to be tl:dw; for a lot of people.  I wonder how much of that is due to social media addiction.  😉

It’s a TED talk by Dr. Cal Newport on the dangers of using social media.

The main points he makes are:

  1. Social media is a slot machine in your phone (or computer).
  2. You don’t need social media to succeed professionally.
  3. There are harms associated with using social media (anxiety, fragmented attention).

Here’s the full talk, for those of you who still have attention spans.
