1. It can feel like you’re never alone. Sometimes people crave alone time. It can be hard to not check your phone when you hear it ping or vibrate.
2. Less face to face interaction. Although there are plenty of apps that encourage face to face interaction, there are plenty of things that do not. Just think of how much easier it is to email someone or just text them.
3. It can make you envious or jealous of other people. Social media usage can make you feel jealous of certain aspects of other people’s life.
4. Sometimes you just know way too much about other people. With phone apps for social media, you sometimes just know way more about a person than maybe you should. You can easily find out just about anything from someone.
