Log Off: Signs You Need To Unplug From Social Media

October 30, 2013 ‐ By Dee Rene


Social media is everywhere. It’s infiltrated our coffee shops and weddings and become a real everyday part of life. There are benefits as your network expands and opportunities can come, but there is an inherent dark side as well. How do you know when it’s too much?

A January 2013 Huffington Post article  stated, “The researchers found that one in three people felt worse after visiting the site [ Facebook] and more dissatisfied with their lives, while people who browsed without contributing were affected the most.”

Personal observation would suggest that this is true for a lot of people on a lot of social media sites. If this is the case, how do you know when it’s time to unplug?

    I was just talking about this yesterday. Especially the one about comparisons. I don’t do that personally but I know people that are always looking at what others post and feeling bad about themselves.

    When I’m out doing things, the last thing on my mind is “let’s take a picture and put it on Facebook”
