The Guardian: Social media is a bad feelings machine. Why can’t we just turn it off for good?. “I write this as someone who owes her career and her partner to social media. I had no journalism qualifications, connections or experience when I began blogging in the mid-2010s, and through Twitter I was able to get a paid internship that gave me my start in journalism. My boyfriend and I connected through Instagram after years of liking each other’s posts. So much of my personal, and professional happiness has been made possible through social media. But as time has gone on I have become more and more certain that the solution to many of the most pressing issues of our time is simply to switch social media off.”
