    I recently quit on Facebook bc it was consuming funny but consuming, and I keep instagram bc I don't pass the time on it. Like you say Social media isn't everything.

        I love that you posted this. I've been talking with so many people on this, so much so that I also posted a video on this. It's taking over lives and making our regular lives seem like they suck. When in reality we live amazing lives. It's hard to be happy when you're consuming content all the time and constantly comparing your life to everyone else's. I got so tired of wasting my life glued to my phone on social media so I gave it up altogether and you know what, i'm a happier person because of it. I love that you're speaking out about this topic.

              We can see what social media’s implications are by looking at our children. It’s turning them into a bunch of anxiety ridden narcissists with little understanding of how to communicate effectively and highly unrealistic life expectations. Essentially, we’re allowing the youth of today to be brainwashed, validating their lives by endlessly comparing themselves with others. It’s insane, morally wrong and driven by corporate greed and advertising profits.

              I gave up all social media three years ago. I’m now 25. At the time literally no one I know under the age of 35 had decided to do this yet. Since then, I’ve watched the revolution slowly beginning to take hold. Viva a social media free life. It facilitates the ability to think about the stuff that actually matters, not the stuff that doesn’t. It’s great to have you on board Casey!

                              Dude took you long time to ditch all this baloney they call 'social media'. I used this shit for about 3 months years ago, and never again wasted my time and energy, with the drivel of this corrupt world.

Except for YouTube, I deleted all social media accounts years ago, and recently, I deleted my entire YouTube channel content (7k+ subs) --- and apart from watching videos almost no one watches, I am winding down YouTube views. Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit (I said that already -- but you cannot say that enough).

                                                                                          It's like smoking...People started doing it because their friends were doing it, then they got hooked and kept doing it even when some friends quit or wouldn't do it. Later researchers said it may be bad for you, then they said it is bad for you. Around the same time, a societal push to quit the habit began and has grown over time...Will Facebook become the next Marlboro???

                                                                                          P.S. I too have quit social media, the stuff isn't good for ya. I'd like to get others to quit but they ultimately have to want to quit.

Well, I just check Twitter from time to time, but I deleted the mobile app and I log in through Safari Browser, so the experience is less appealing. BUT I deleted completely Facebook and Instagram. And my life is just waaay sooo much better. Sure, I don't get as much contact with long time friends, but the friends who really need to be there are always there.
                                                                                            So just delete accounts. Without doubts, just do it!
                                                                                            Also, do not disturb mode forever is a clever way to manage your phone. Except maybe for calls and VIP messages.

                                                                                              @CaseyNeistat not related to this video I have a quick question. I am a South African ultra-distance trail runner (19th in the country according to the results at SA Trail running Champs Marathon distance at HoutBay) and a programming student. I am interested if you have ever considered running Comrades Marathon as your second half is a Capetonian? Would you ever be interested, if so when will you do it?.
