  11. I'm so glad I stop using social media. Now I'll use Snapchat sometimes not all the time.

  12. Ehh😑🤨 that video was more of a promo rather than a video about our braign…ooh!😮

  13. No, relationships do NOT go better when people meet online. They're hardly ever even positive!

  14. I’m just overall badly addicted to being on my phone even when there’s nothing on it. I wasn’t like this at all years ago until people were kept telling me to create an IG or a Facebook etc, I was more of an active wanted to skate board or go for a walk now I can’t spend a second without trying to check all my social media. I hate it and can’t stop it’s like addictively unhealthy and ruining my life.

  15. It is very crazy had social media has such a huge impact on peoples's lives. I will confess that I spend a large amount of time browsing through my social media accounts throughout the day. I experience phantom vibration syndrome quite often which is scary because it shows a sign of addiction. I use it to keep up with whats going on in the world because now its such a huge outlet for news that you can view at your fingertips in secs from anywhere.

  20. @asapSCIENCE why is it that I get exhausted in social interactions? When I'm trying to make small talk with someone I've just met I feel tired or even when it's just a friend that does most of the talking.

  21. Im 16 and I only have YouTube,tik tok and Snapchat.. it's more than enough

  22. This is why I don’t have Instachat or snapgram

  23. Question: Why do people fill their lives with lies instead the truth? Or Why do dreams and nightmares depend on what we feared and what we want to happen?

  24. This a song/video we just produced, called 'Communication Nation' . If you do, please like and share:
