Ocasio-Cortez Gives Up Facebook, Calls Social Media A ‘Public Health Risk’

8

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she has given up Facebook and expressed concerns about the negative effects of social media platforms in general.

“I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook and Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time,” the New York Democrat said in an interview with Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast on Sunday.

Ocasio-Cortez said that she thinks, in general, “social media poses a public health risk to everybody.” She also said “there are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time.”

“But I think it has a lot of effects on older people,” she said. “I think it has effects on everybody: increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

  1. Ocasio-Cortez said that she thinks, in general, “social media poses a public health risk to everybody.” She also said, “there are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time.”

    “But I think it has a lot of effects on older people,” she said. “I think it has effects on everybody: increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

    I never thought I would agree with Ocasio-Cortez about something. but she is 100% correct about this

    I give her credit for her realization

  2. Don’t think for one second that she is saying this because she realised the problem with social media. The only reason this mershaas is saying this, is because she thought that facebook is her personal mouthpiece, but she suddenly realized that people are talking back, and are not saying exactly what she likes. So she tried screaming louder for a while, but the others are screaming louder too. Now she finally gave up. Hopefully she’ll give up on everything else, and we won’t have to see or hear from the crazy ever again.

  3. Can’t Matzav justdeclare AOC a persona non grata? She’s a 29 year old ignoramus that only has garbage or nothing of value to say. She disgraced the people she represents and the Congress as a whole. The Democratic Party has hit new lows with the morons, anti m-Americans and anti-semites that populate their party. And the biggest cholera is Pelosi herself. A big liar and power hungry hypocrite.
