Meghan Markle wore her heart on her sleeve to discuss social media and why the Duchess has said goodbye to these platforms.
The Duchess of Sussex revealed to Fortune Magazine in 2020 that she deleted her personal Instagram account in 2018 out of a desire for “self-preservation.”
“I haven’t been on social media in a long time for my own self-preservation,” she explained. “I had a personal account that I closed down years ago,” she explained.
“I’ve made a personal choice not to have any account,” the Suits alum continued, “so I don’t know what’s out there and many ways that’s helpful for me.”
She referred to drug addicts and social media users as “users,” implying that the algorithm is to blame for fostering an unhealthy obsession.
“Growing up in today’s world, social media is more addictive than drugs and alcohol, but it’s more dangerous because it’s normalized and has no boundaries.” “We are living in a mind-altering period,” he said.
