Who couldn’t use a social media break – turns out, celebs *are* just like us
Model Gigi Hadid announced that she was taking a week-long social media break, because, she said, “it’s good for the soulll.”
Not only is social media incredibly addictive (you’ve probably been on at least one network in the past 30 minutes), but science says it can make us feel inadequate, sad, jealous and more isolated.
Users can mistake social interaction on a network for real-life interaction, making time alone feel more satisfying.
Being in the limelight, whether you’re an actress, model, singer or professional athlete, can weigh heavily on the human psyche. Some have said it’s made them feel like they’re being constantly judged (which they are) and like they have no privacy. Social media just adds another layer, with fans and trolls able to communicate with stars whenever they feel like it – and not always in a positive manner.
