I need to cut down my social media use because it’s consuming my life. Which one would you delete and why?

My insta pros:
- nice to share photos of where you’ve been / what you’re doing
- has a story feature like snapchat as well
- you can get likes
- you can follow celebrities/your idols/your interests and keep up with their latest developments/news

My insta cons:
- people posting selfies
- people acting fake and showing off the good bits of their lives
- people comparing the number of likes you get / the number of followers you have as a popularity contest and you become in higher regard if your posts gets hundreds of likes

My snap pros:
- people are less fake on it
- much more of ‘private’ app than insta
- no character limit on messages
- can see where your mates are if you need to meet them somewhere on snapmap
- not a popularity contest like insta because no one knows how many contacts you have

My snap cons:
- can’t follow your interests/any particular celebrities as easy as insta
- youll probably have more insta followers than snap contacts so you can’t reach out to a bigger audience and show them where you’ve been/visited
- no like function to show you like a particular snap

Keep the one you use to talk to your friends more on. I use snap more because its a short time spent on it by comparison and my friends tend to reply on it quick.

Don't delete the account but log out instead so you don't have to re-add people
