When we think of social media, we often assume that it is a platform for celebrities. After all, celebrities are professionals who have a wide following on social media—look at the most followed users on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. You will see that these are Hollywood actors and actresses. Do you know what's the most followed account on Instagram? It is The Rock. Why, you may ask? Well, apparently, he is a popular celebrity.
Thus, there are hundreds of examples where you can see these celebs enjoy a massive following on all social media platforms. And that is fair enough! Through social media, fans get the opportunity to interact with their favorite celebs. They share their ideas in comments and direct messages and thus, the show goes on.
Of course, this massive following comes with numerous perks. The foremost among them is that these celebs understand how loved they are. Similarly, they also get to know why they are loved. This is how they develop mutual trust and build rapport with their fans.
Nevertheless, there are other Hollywood celebrities who have decided to say no to social media once and for all. Frankly speaking, they have their own reasons. At the end of the day, it does not matter whether or not agree with their decision to quit social media. For the most part, these celebs have said goodbye to social media to look after their mental health. Most Hollywood celebrities who have said goodbye to social media believe that it is too much for them to process. They argue that their mental health gets ignored as they occupy themselves on social media.
Here are some of the celebrities who do not use social media:
Brad Pitt is the first celebrity who has pledged not to use social media anymore. While this upsets many Brad fans, he suggests that he can not take on the ‘duality’ of social media. The actor argues that social media users are not really who they are in actual life.
While the actor understands social media's importance, he thinks it's negative side is too much for him to process.
Twenty-eight years old comedian Pete Davidson is another popular celebrity who does not use social media. You might be thinking about the ‘toxic’ online presence of his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. This could be one of the reasons for the comedian to quit social media.
But it turns out that Pete Davidson is more into his mental health. He argues that he can not keep up with false information that is spread on social media. Instead, he has preferred to give himself space. A space where he can look after his mental health and well-being. Of course, this could be possible when you are away - much away - from social media.
