Well, to be honest, I spend a lot of time on social media. I am usually the kind of person that stays almost 6 hours a day on Facebook. I’ve been Fb addicted for a lot of years now and I believe that it is finally the time to minimise this waste of time. I’ve been on Fb at school, at jobs, during Christmass, birthday, and even now I’m on Facebook.
I know that it is pretty useful since it keeps you in contact with your acquaintances, but it also feels like sometimes it makes you lonelier. For example, back in the days, we just used to make a call and talk to people instead of replying to texts.
So, how much time have I lost on Facebook?
The first time I joined Facebook, I believe it was on Feb 2012. Okay, some days I haven’t spent 6 hours and other days I had spent more than 10 hours on it. Let’s assume that I spent in total 2 hours each day(which actually I believe that it would be pretty close). So, today is June 15th, 2017. I will take into account only 1 year with 366 days. Therefore, up until 1st of Feb 2017, I had spent a total amount of 3652 hours. From Feb up until know have passed 135 days -> 270 hours. So, up until know, If I spent 2 hours a day since I joined Fb, that would make a total of 3807 hours. That’s almost 159 days(158.625) or 23 weeks or 5.6 months. So, I succeeded in wasting 5.6 months of my life on Fb.
What if I spent 4 hours a day on average? That would be 7614 hours or 318 days or 46 weeks or 11.25 months of doing nothing than just scrolling and chatting with people.
Do you spend less than 2 hours a day on Social Media?
If yes, congratulations!
If not, it has come the time to spend our free time more wisely!
So, how could you spend time more wisely? For example, you can try and learn more about developing your website, learn something new( such as a programming language), practice your hobbies etc.
How smart would you be if you had spent 5.6 months in learning something new? How good could you’ve become at it?
*Remember, you need to spend 6 months on your website to provide you results. Instead of wasting all of this time, I could have invested it in something better, in something useful rather than just scrolling on Fb.
From now on, I’ll try to spend around 1 hour a day on Facebook. It seems kinda impossible since yesterday I’ve spent around 4 hours, but wish me luck xD!
Wish you a great day,
