    Pfft. That's not quitting. You'll be back before you know it. Hit your smartphones with a brick and get a basic phone and plan - if you still can.

    I spent six years without a cellphone. And it was awesome,
    Now I have one,but there's no social media on it . The more I stay away from it the better I feel .

    It's the insant aspect of those sites.
    That moves lot of reality-based things (even social ones)
    into those sites. Meaning, it moves it there,
    so you lose it by your own self in your real life.
    And voluntarily moves it with vision it's enough
    for your social life to be this way.
    It's an illusion though.
    It should stay where it should be,
    in outside world, not on a site.

      Do you know how many replies I have received on this this dumb comment? You know that RU-clip was originally designed as a social media, a way to share and watch what is going on in other people's lives. Here you can watch endless movies and shows, (With RU-clip Premium) and comment on videos. If you look at the replies on my comment, you will find that we are communicating. Just because someone is lying on their chair and on their desktop all day, I am sure that they will have at least one social interaction on a media device. If you would like the definition of social media, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." RU-clip falls under all definitions of social media.

    • M K

      Disagree. Social media's primary purpose is a platform to "socialize". It commonly depends on "social" interaction with friends, family, strangers, etc.
      RU-clip's primary purpose is a platform to post video content. I never HAVE to "socialize" here unless I choose to. Here I can watch endless movies and shows, ignoring the comments, and totally forget about the outside world. For some RU-clip is the single most *antisocial* media platform there is.

    • Stevin Balthazor
      Stevin Balthazor 11 days ago +1

      I understand your comment, RU-clip is a way for creators to express themselves, and for Casey, RU-clip is his job. For example, making content that involves music is still a form of artistic expression, and that is a different type pf social media. I still believe that in some ways, RU-clip isn't social media. Making content that involves unboxing toys, in my opinion, is not a way that people can express themselves. It is just a trap for views. So DegenWoW, I do agree with you in some cases, youtube sometimes isn't as expressive as is meant to be.

    • DegenWoW
      DegenWoW 11 days ago

      Sure, but none can be measured the same, I guess.
      Simple blog or personal website is a social Media then.
      Yet in my view social media is Clear giants like F, Ing and these kinds.
      For the effect they (in my view) have on human and humanity-
      Subjective, I Guess, But we can discuss, If you WIhs,, No hate needed Of Course-------=

    • Stevin Balthazor
      Stevin Balthazor 11 days ago +1

      I am usually not the person to hate comment, in fact I dislike it very much, but youtube was meant to be Googles first way for people to share things with the world. The definition of social media is, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." What you just explained was youtube, but in a more serious fashion. RU-clip falls under all the expectations of a social media and it always will. Google literally considers RU-clip social media.

And I focus on what really matters now like friends family and my future!!! 🤯

    I’m fully agreed with Casey that social media is a noise which manipulates our minds. But here is a paradox - I have subscribed to him on twitter & instagram right after that video instead to delete these apps. LOL

    I uninstalled them all too. But then I couldn't find anyone who was willing to talk without checking their phones and that annoyed me so I got isolated and then depressed. Also my RU-clip videos wont get even a single view because I wasnt sharing it with anyone anywhere digitally. So that was a handicapped situation. I had to forcefully come back. I dont like being on social media. But it is necessary for me in order to get my work noticed

    Hey Casey maybe you ought to be interested in highlighting what @youtube have done here in the UK by banning Tommy Robinson and censoring his content. RU-clip may choose to do this to you someday if they don't like what you agree with. How about speaking out against this Casey Neistat

  • James L.
    James L. 21 day ago

    I will not be surprised when the massive uprising in suicide finally gets linked to our constant social media barrage of "compare your real life to my glossed over one".
    I dunno if Casey will be able to stick to this, but if one person learns to put down the phone and go for a walk, I swear it will be worth it.
    When I was a kid and you called tommy to get together to play video games, sometimes tommy wouldn't be home, so you would call billy and go play basketball with him. You did not assume Tommy hated you like you do when you text someone now and they do not answer for 3 hours...maybe we need a "living life, text you back when I am not" autoreply?? This ramble proves I need to drink less :P

    bitleyTM 21 day ago

    People go: Why did you delete me on facebook? Or today: "You deleted me on Facebook"... and I'm like no, I deleted myself. There's just too much information that I don't really should deal with. This is different because I can select - it's just like listening to radio vs actively picking records - and in my case - actually making music. So RU-clip is the winner for me. Twitter? Deleted. Instagram? Never got the point with it.

    Creating/experiencing takes effort. Scrolling does not. If you want to make crafts, it's easier to watch a vid of someone doing it than learning and buying the stuff and spending the time to do it. It's no surprise that scrolling has caught on like wildfire. No judgement, just no surprise.

  • David Cosloff
    David Cosloff 21 day ago

    This video is awesome. Social media addiction is real. I had it but not anymore because I am not letting that consume me. Why I love RU-clip is that I can share my passion and creativity. I love who I am. What makes me feel alive, joy-filled whatever that is, it's my purpose, not my burden. Why social media causes depression is that people are more successful than other people. People don't follow people who have a small number of followers because they always follow people who have a big amount of followers even that blue checkmark. I post one thing on Instagram each day whether it is quotes or something I like. I love being positive and I don't like the dark side of social media and you know what that is. I love the motivation and the encouragement those things make you feel good about yourself. Honestly, I want social media to be better all of it to be more motivating and encouraging. I love Casey neistat, Collins Key and Mr. beast because they are so motivating, encouraging, entertaining even selfless. I respect those people and I don't look up tot hem as idols, I look up to them as human beings. We are not perfect. I love imperfection because they can be themselves. That's what I wanted to be as myself. I want to do motivating, encouraging, selfless, giving, entertaining, epic, dope content. I love being me, You should love being you. Peace ✌
