Social media snakes

I’ve heard a few (just a few) people saying that social media is really not the best thing for a good mental health: constant comparison, FOMO, pushy political agendas etc.

I’ve also heard other people suggesting that someone (I assume they are talking about themself) should show an example (in their own life) how a healthy social media usage would look like.

Listen, if you really think it’s bad, then it’s a good idea to draw an analogy here: it’s like playing with snakes. Some are bitten more than the others, but noone is perfect as there might be a snake crawling from the behind. So if kids play with snakes and they suffer, would you then bring in an experienced tamer to show some tricks on how to handle them properly?
