  1. From my personal experience, staying completely away from social media gave me true happiness. If I were to give one powerful advice on how to protect your privacy and be mentally healthy, it would be to quit or not to sign up for any social media. Numerous credible studies support my claim. Of course, everyone has the freedom to choose how to spend their time. But before you post the next photo on Instagram, sharing a live story on Snapchat, or scroll through the Facebook feed, think about the possible dangers it can pose on your privacy and mental health. Many of think social media harmless and go on it “unconsciously” when the truth is exactly the opposite.
