I thin that majority of my standards in certain things are different from what social media promote. Some of this are the beauty standards, way of living and such

I would never of discovered the term non-binary /agender and been able to find this identity that allows me to describe myself.
On the downside social media has made me feel like I unfortunately have to conform or am ‘not popular’ without likes or follows... when in reality I have a very large group of freinds and community!

If social media is used for good, it’s great!

If social media didn't exist, or I knew how to manage it better my life would be 101% better tbh.

For one thing, I'd not procrastinate nearly as much.

Well I would say that if social media didn't exist, I would've been living my true life by now. And yeah, I wouldn't be procrastinating that much.

It would be better, but for the wrong reasons really.

Not that different for me personally, I hardly use it. I would probably socialise more irl which would be good. And stop picking up my phone when I'm being lazy

I would be so much happier.

Phones are honestly horrible to see, even though I am a user of one. I always try to maintain eye contact.

We've got to the point where physical connection or the mere eye contact is very precious and rare now

I grew up in the early 2000'. Internet wasn't much of a thing back then. There were chat rooms where teenagers would just talk trash. It wasn't really that different. Most people were as boring as they are now.
Most of the braindead hoes that spam their selfies and pictures of barely edible food would just stare in to the wall or watch TV.
Eye contact wasn't really happening. On you way to work you would read a random magazine or a leaflet while listening to music.
Strangers were still strangers...
