    Deleting snapchat, Facebook and Instagram. Shall I do it? I've realise I gain very little seeing what everyone else is up to this summer holiday. Will life without social media be peaceful or will I become an anti-social hermit? Anyone else minimised social media in their life with the effects?

    I barely use fb now while before I used to be on it 24/7. Whenever I go on it I just negatively judge people, I think social media is quite un healthy. Instagram is good though!

    Anyways you dont need social media to be social. You would still have whatsapp so you can talk to friends that way.

    And you can socialise by going to the gym or park ,and making more friends.

    That's what I'm thinking! The few friends in quite close with I talk to on whatsapp and iMessage so I guess I could still use this. Just reflecting on everything I feel like looking through snapchat stories does more harm than good sometimes

    You can deacivate your account temporarily if you wanted, I mean its a happy alternative to deleting it

    Yeah, I know exactly what you mean with the kast sentence.

    Just remember that most of the time snaochat stories dont reflect the reality of peoples lives. People use it to show off

    Tbh you shouldn't delete it but you should just use everything less. Occupy your time with other things, you seem like someone who reads a lot of books

    Honestly, the other social networks are pointless to me. TSR is all I need! :gthumb:

    I used to use Facebook a lot, but now I just keep it in case someone messages me on there or someone I know personally adds me.

    I got rid of Snapchat because all people do on it is post silly selfies of themselves.

    I also deactivated my Facebook account prior to my exams, because I felt it was a distraction. Now that my exams are finished, I'm not planning to reactivate it since I've decided that I need to go out more, instead of being chained to my desk.

    When I joined college, I did this. Slowly I reintroduced all social media back into my life over time by creating fresh accounts rather than using my old ones, and to be honest nowadays I spend far less time on social media than I used to previously. So go for it ^.^
