Adopting a sane approach to social media, and apps generally - 9to5Mac
Briefly

The author discusses their experience with using social media, particularly Facebook, and how it has affected their life. They mention that Facebook is great for keeping up with friends in other countries and staying involved in the lives of friends and family members. However, they also acknowledge the negative aspects, such as getting sucked into consuming excessive amounts of content and Facebook's attempt to mimic TikTok. The author concludes that each social network has its own pros and cons.
In my case, the primary offender was Facebook - and yeah, I know that makes me officially old, thanks. Maybe for you it's X, Instagram, TikTok, or something else, so convert my references as appropriate.
The author expresses their frustration with how easy it is to get sucked into consuming more and more content on Facebook. They mention the excessive amount of suggested and sponsored posts and their desire for an ad-free version. They also criticize Facebook's attempt to morph into a TikTok-like platform. The author acknowledges that different people will have different experiences and opinions on social media platforms, depending on their most-used network.
The biggest problem with Facebook is how easy it is to get sucked in to more and more content. We start by following real friends, then acquaintances, then someone we met at an event ... Then we add Pages and Groups into the mix. Each individual one doesn't add much to our feed, but it can easily reach the point where it's more than half our content. Plus suggested and sponsored posts are completely out of hand; if I had the option of subscribing to an ad-free version, I'd gladly take it (thanks, Brexit).
