1. Waste of Time
If you look a decade back you would see Facebook as the new social media website, creating a hype. People had started using it to keep an eye on the people they did not have very good terms with in high school. It was an all-new website getting fame as the thing that would help you keep in touch with all the people you knew. But with time we all became addicts, not able to leave the site because of the ritual of being on Facebook and proving that you exist. Even having realized very well that it is a waste of our time. All we ever do is scroll through our Newsfeed. Many people do it the first thing in morning and the last thing at night. A casual average user according to the statistics and the studies made spends at least 17 minutes on Facebook on daily basis. If we look at this minimum rate and calculate we would be surprised to find out how much time we have wasted using this website.
Let’s say a person joined Facebook when it had started getting the fame, 10 year ago. This person has spent 40 entire days of their life scrolling or updating their Facebook profile. Now lets move on to the more dedicated users who spend about an hour a day on the site, they would now have spent 150 days of their lives liking pictures, commenting, posting and what not during these 10 years. Just think of how many days of your life you must have spent over this site, we bet you could find a better place to invest your precious time in.
