“Offline is the new luxury”

Back at school, when being on social media wasn’t a trend, I used to crave to have a Twitter and Facebook account. But now when everyone has their Twitter, I have almost forgotten to use Twitter.

See the difference.
is quite a controversial topic to fuss around.
Whenever someone would say to quit it, others might come up with a bunch of ‘not quitting reasons. Thus everything gets neutralized.

We have come up with certain key points to focus on.
No one can convince you to quit media platforms at anyhow.
We will assert the facts, you have to pick.

Benefits of quitting social media

1. Help you save a colossal amount of time:

Young minds find certain attractive and non-interesting things on social media that affects their mind and ruins their valuable time. Along with useful things fake news wheels on these platforms. People get confused between right and wrong. The people who are posting, never take accountability for their actions. It is only enforceable if anyone writes harsh words about influencers. Common men have no such value here.

Quitting social media can help you focus more on hobbies that you love. It will help you mend your faults and help you bring more positivity around you

2. Help you differentiate between real and superficial people:

Not being able to connect face-to-face is a demerit. You will never get to know the person in real life. If they are fake, they could fraud you.
People must be careful while sharing secrets and personal information on social media as they never know, when could that be used against them.
Being less on social media will not only help you understand real people but also how to stay away from the unreal ones.

3. Less FOMO (fear of missing out):

Most are on media places to stay updated to every new upload. When you quit using social media, you get less FOMO and less bother about being refreshed all the time.

Less fear of FOMO will reduce social stress and willingness to stay updated even in times when it seems risky or much of an impossible task.

4. Fewer chances of reputation damage:

A wrong step can ruin your prestige on social media. Some people deliberately try to defame others.
If you ever fall in traps, report their accounts, and inform the IT cells immediately.

So if you are not on any social media, then automatically your chances of getting defamed will reduce to zero.

5. More positivity around you:

The negative news is much more entertained and well-received by people. We love to gossip. If everything is good and boring what should we chit-chat about? This is our intellect now. To gain more followers, people sow lies which get the most number of shares.

Getting out of a social network will save you from fake and negative impacts on you. You will find more reality and positivity in the offline world.

6. More secured privacy:

The unethical hackers are keeping a track of our move on social media. From online transactions to net banking, social media is a threat to our bank balance. A single swipe can withdraw all money and leave you penniless. Many people have been deceived by such frauds.
