"I think the cons of social media, as in the case of many other amazing things in life, come when we start taking it a little too seriously. I mean, I get it. In 2018, social media can be serious business. I should know — I Facebook for a living (it’s not just that, of course, but for comedic effect). But there are so many people out there whose lives revolve around the likes they get on Instagram, who get caught up in the negativity of posts on Facebook, who revel in the arguments they get in the comments section. At that point, it really just starts sucking the life out of you. That said, I do think the good of social media balances out the bad, depending on the way each person uses it. For me, it’s all about having a healthy balance of both on- and off-line lives, and taking everything you see on Facebook with a grain of salt. There is more to the current events than a clickbait headline, and more to people than their Instagram handle."
