Checking social media is a lot like smoking

They’re both enormously gratifying in the short-run, but compulsive, addictive, and unsatisfying in the long-term.

There are no obvious health risks to checking social media as there are with smoking, but that’s not necessarily the point, is it? It’s freedom and happiness we’re concerned with.

As with any product, it just depends how you use it.
