What would you do? What would you do if you had to choose between giving up social media for the rest of your life, or giving up streaming services? Both are likely used daily in your life, making this choice a tough one. Many of us enjoy hours daily watching shows, movies, and watching old shows you can't find on TV as well. There are often more hours spent scrolling through social media, or perhaps you are scrolling through social media while streaming a show. If you had to give up one of them, which would you choose and why?

Giving Up Social Media in Idaho

Last week, there was a moment where many across the country panicked, with Facebook and Instagram both being down. It forced many to realize how much they rely on it, and how life would be without some of their social media platforms. Typically, many spend more time than they realize scrolling through the apps, and it can take over someone's life if they aren't careful. Something is entertaining about knowing what is happening in everyone's life and also seeing many memes and videos daily. Would you be able to make it throughout the day without scrolling through these apps? What about a week? Could you go the rest of your life without social media?

While many spend hours upon hours on social media daily, many of us also do the same on streaming services. Fewer and fewer people are watching television these days, and more and more are using streaming services. You can watch shows from your childhood, you can watch movies and shows in one setting, or you can watch shows again after you finish them because you refuse to let it end. Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, and many more are what people prefer to use instead of live television, and it is nice to be able to watch shows on your phone, computer, or tablet, anywhere you go. Imagine not being able to use those though and not knowing how certain shows end or watching some of your favorite characters who feel like real friends.

Giving up either would be a tough choice, especially during the long winters when many of us spend time at home in front of our TVs and on our phones. Social media allows us to connect to others and let our voices be heard, but the streaming services allow us to escape reality and be sucked into other universes in movies and shows. If forced to give up streaming services or social media, what would you do?
