Quitting Instagram

recent essay that describes one 22-year-old woman’s “empowering and unexpectedly isolating” experience in freeing herself from Instagram is gaining the attention of both Millennials and Generation Z.

The essay’s author, Carolyn, falls into the Generation Z category, which means that she is part of a generation that has never experienced the world without a smartphone. The essay offers a refreshing take on the effect social media can have on an individual.

The essay also gives a window into the mind of Generation Z and their relationship with social media. We recommend sitting down and reading the essay with your family. Ask your teens if they resonate with Carolyn’s thoughts and attitudes or if they have felt the same tension on social media.
