Another important aspect is losing the ability to think for ourselves. This may sound harsh, but as a society, we are relying on social media too much for our information. Because of this, it is harder to decipher fact from fiction. Who wants to live like this? Make an effort to obtain knowledge that doesn't come from your Facebook newsfeed. For example, if you see political news being shared from another user, go to the source and don't take it as gospel. In the process, you will educate yourself more on various matters to make a more informed decision. Enlist a friend to keep you accountable and to check in with you daily to help you.
