More People Want To Quit Social Media Than Smoking In 2017

Quitting social media is a more popular New Year's resolution than giving up smoking, a new study has found.
A survey of 1,578 members of, a local services marketplace in the U.K., showed that 10 percent of people plan to give up social media this year, compared to the eight percent who want to abandon smoking.
Recent academic research proved that social media can be detrimental for one's mental health and wellbeing. A University of Copenhagen study published in December concluded that excessive Facebook or social-media usage "can negatively affect your emotional wellbeing and satisfaction with life," provoking jealousy and inadequacy due to "unrealistic social comparisons."
However, the same research also said that there is a way of using Instagram, Facebook, Twitter et al in a positive way. Those who use social media platforms to engage and connect with others are more likely to have a pleasurable experience than those who use it passively.
The moral of the story is don't loiter and stalk on Facebook, use it to communicate with others.
