Apr 15 - Ocasio-Cortez calls social media a "public health risk"

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said in a new interview that she gave up her personal Facebook account, adding that the move was especially painful because she first organized her successful congressional campaign on the platform.

The freshman lawmaker told Yahoo News's "Skullduggery" podcast that “social media poses a public health risk to everybody.”

“There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3, with screen time,” she said. “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody: increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

Ocasio-Cortez also said she “gave up on" Facebook, calling it a "big deal."

“I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook,” she said. “And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. I gave up on it.”

The 29-year-old progressive often knocks critics and calls out President Trump on Twitter.

She told Yahoo News that she writes all her own posts on both Twitter and Instagram, and is aware of the effects social media has “both as a person with a larger audience but also as an individual user of these platforms.”

Ocasio-Cortez has also gained popularity for live-streaming daily tasks and habits on Instagram while talking to her viewers.

Like most anything, social media is dangerous depending on how you use it.

Uzi was ahead with that delete your social song

When you are in a bad place the first thing you should do is sign out your social media

If you post about it 9/10 nobody gonna care

And the other 1/10 is Just doing it to appear to care

Reserve yourself a bit and talk to people who actually know you in real life and build with them

She's right. I only post on IG for work related things and have a Twitter account only to get direct updates from the leader of the free world.

i guess the common theme was that most people are playing a character in person, but FB somehow peels that mask away and gets people to do and say things they don't do irl, like being drunk

the dude who never talked politics is now trolling with memes and posts that are against everything you believe, he's the same age as you, but the posts read like a grade schooler

the guy who thinks he's smart, gets clowned on his post and freaks out because "everyone" can see it

the guy who makes moves on the other side of the law recklessly flexing with a publicly open FB page and says you're being a pu**y for telling him to quit wildin

the guy who takes a simple, harmless comment the wrong way and dwells on it for days, ignoring phone calls, before exploding

I still have a FB account but I haven't posted anything in months, I don't even read my feeds. I use it for the messenger.

I rarely go on Twitter, I definitely don't post on there. I usually just read to see what's going on in the world, it's a good pulse check.

And I post something on IG once in awhile but I got an ex gf that's always liking my sh*t and trying to catch my attention.

Even crazy people make a point now and then. I think she's smart, just extremely naive and lacking in tact.
