Why aren’t You Paid for Your Time on Social Media?

FROGTOWN, ST PAUL–The average person spends 2 hours and 22 minutes of their day on social media. If that person was making minimum wage for their time (average in US $7.25), they would have made $5,874.67 in a year.

That’s a credit card paid off, like, yesterday. That money could be new clothes for the kids. That money could be a student loan reduced by a large percentage, or entirely gone. Imagine.

And most, if not all of us are paid no money to be on social media. And social media makes money off of us through advertising and using our personal data.

So, think about that next time you log on to scroll, those hours could be dollars to better your situation, to pay attention to a loved one, to change your life.

But today, the average person lines the pocketbook of another, without a notice or a care in the real world. Today, you can get what you deserve for your time, just think.

Deactivate Your Social Media and Reactivate Your Life

EVERYWHERE, USA–Even with endless connection through social media, Generation Z and Millennials report feeling lonely. This is a clear sign that there is a need to deactivate societal social media account, and that social media is anything but social.

In the time a person can scroll a page endlessly they could have read book on self-help. They could have met a friend for a walk. A person could have started a side gig and paid down on crushing credit card or student loan debt. A person could have learnt a skill and realized they were happier with less constant interaction.

Social media can be a useful for staying in touch with old friends (so too can handwritten letters and phone calls). However, social media is not a friend, not even close. It is time to take your real life back by deactivating your social media and reactivating your life. Upgrade your life today.
