Keywords: Yahoo News , MSN , Default Partners

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Snap‘s Snapchat, Google — at the end of the day, they are not here to serve you and me. They can only survive if they serve their customers (the advertisers) first.

In my opinion, all kids and teenagers should grow up without [social media] but it’s impossible to control. At least make sure you set time for yourself without any distraction, ban your phone when you eat and when you’re spending time with someone in real life for example (even if it happens less often nowadays).
