It’s one of the hottest documentaries sinceTiger King. People are watching and being transformed byThe Social Dilemma-- and for good reason. The message of social media manipulation and how much of our data is being used is frightening.
There are ways to kick the social media addiction, though, and Catherine Price, author ofHow to Break Up With Your Phone, shared a few bits of advice withToday.
Catherine said that a good way to start is by watching the movie and then asking yourself what you care about and what kind of person you want to be. You can then use that as a compass for yourself. She says that having a purpose or passion in life makes you care less about social media.
She also suggests that you ask yourself why you’re turning to the apps in the first place. And, of course, simply taking a break from your device can also be helpful.
