        simon sinek talks a lot about social media and its impact. How we are just now starting to see the long term affects on the younger generations. Eye opening stuff

          Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit. Except for YouTube, I deleted all social media accounts years ago, and recently, I deleted my entire YouTube channel content (7k+ subs) --- and apart from watching videos almost no one watches, I am winding down YouTube views. Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit (I said that already -- but you cannot say that enough).

              After my 7-day honeymoon trip to a pacific island, I closed my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Best thing I've even done for sure.

                            Deleting an app doesn't work
                            You must delete your profile.

                                    It's like smoking...People started doing it because their friends were doing it, then they got hooked and kept doing it even when some friends quit or wouldn't do it. Later researchers said it may be bad for you, then they said it is bad for you. Around the same time, a societal push to quit the habit began and has grown over time...Will Facebook become the next Marlboro???

                                    P.S. I too have quit social media, the stuff isn't good for ya. I'd like to get others to quit but they ultimately have to want to quit.

                                      Go ahead Casey! I quited Social Media a long time ago and no regrets... Well, I just check Twitter from time to time, but I deleted the mobile app and I log in through Safari Browser, so the experience is less appealing. BUT I deleted completely Facebook and Instagram. And my life is just waaay sooo much better. Sure, I don't get as much contact with long time friends, but the friends who really need to be there are always there.
                                      So just delete accounts. Without doubts, just do it!
                                      Also, do not disturb mode forever is a clever way to manage your phone. Except maybe for calls and VIP messages.

                                        @CaseyNeistat not related to this video I have a quick question. I am a South African ultra-distance trail runner (19th in the country according to the results at SA Trail running Champs Marathon distance at HoutBay) and a programming student. I am interested if you have ever considered running Comrades Marathon as your second half is a Capetonian? Would you ever be interested, if so when will you do it?.

Every day, I watch YouTube til 11pm. And I don’t feel like I am myself anymore. So I think it’s time to change. I think it is a good choice to ask someone influenced me a lot to give me some advice. So, do you think deleting YouTube on my phone and tablet is a good choice? Well, you might not answer me, but I have decided that I am officially deleting YouTube from both of my mobile devices

Then at night I can just use my laptop right before I go to bed during the time I’d already be on insta and go through hopefully more meaningfully since I haven’t been on it all day
