Facebook linked to depression
Quitting Facebook for 99 days
A new study claims the secret to being happier is quitting Facebook for 99 Days. According to the study, the average user would regain more than 28 hours of their life back. The challenge encourages users to sign up, change their profile photo, and remove the Facebook app from their phone. While a good idea in theory, how realistic is it?
Yes, people wonder what life is like without Facebook, but people are less likely to take permanent action to remove themselves from technology. Taking a summer detox is a great idea, but you don’t need to completely extricate yourself from social media to detox. Only 25,000 of Facebook’s 1 billion users have vowed to do this detox. It is too severe for the average Facebook user.
Are you too dependent on social media platforms? Here are some tips to unplug.

Social Media Minimalism on the rise
From interior design to social media, the goal is to say more with less.
What is Social Media Minimalism?
Social media minimalism is the idea that quality matters more than quality when it comes to content volume and output on social media platforms.
The idea of social media minimalism is to be more conscious with what you post and who you are posting to.
For years, social media agencies have encouraged brands to post multiple times per day on numerous social media platforms.
When you are everywhere, you are nowhere.
When you talk to everyone, you are essentially talking to no one.
Quality over quantity:
Ruby Media Group advocates for the philosophy of social media minimalism.
Instead of overwhelming your social media followers with an excessive amount of posts, executives should focus on delivering high-quality content that informs and educates your target audience.
