Prevent becoming addicted to social media
- Stay informed about manipulation tactics.
It's important to be aware that technology designers employ techniques to manipulate our brain chemistry, specifically dopamine, which can make it challenging for us to resist using their products.
- Watch out for the absence of "stopping cues."
Many apps are intentionally designed without clear indicators or cues to let us know when we've had enough. Be mindful of this and recognize when you may be spending excessive time on certain apps or websites.
- Introduce a pause before diving into social media.
Consider implementing a "moment of reflection" by adding a short twelve-second delay before social media apps open. This delay can provide you with an opportunity to reconsider your decision and evaluate whether you truly want to engage with social media at that moment.
