Curious Saturday: When should you quit Social Media?
In this great TED Talk, Cal Newport, a millennial computer scientist, who has never had a social media account, believes that he is better off without it and wants to convince others to feel the same.
Newport addresses common objections he hears about quitting social media, including that it is a fundamental technology and necessary for success in the 21st century economy. He refutes these objections, saying that “social media is just a source of entertainment” and is somewhat unsavory when examined closely.
He also argues that success in the modern economy is based on skills and expertise rather than social media presence. https://www.ted.com/talks/cal_newport_why_you_should_quit_social_media
