Michiganders Hate Social Media More than Anyone Else, According to Twitter
Social media is one of those things you have a love/hate relationship. It keeps you in contact with friends and family, you can share pictures, see funny memes but at the same time it's where you can see a lot of misinformation, judgement, trolling, and fights happen.
But when it comes to the hate aspect of the relationship, nobody feels more strongly than Michiganders.
A data analytics and visualization software company, Think Big Analytics, analyzed over 350,000 geotags on Twitter to determine what states have the most "Negative Social Media Sentiment." To find the result, the company looked at some of the following Tweets and where they were coming from:
I hate social media.
I hate Instagram.
I hate Facebook.
I hate TikTok.
I hate Snapchat
I hate Twitter.
I've definitely said a couple of those phrases up there but I don't see myself ever being able to give up Instagram, lol.
Overall, the midwest tends to have the most hatred for social media. What's ironic is Michigan may dislike social media the most, but residents also use it more than any other state (per MLive)... I'm assuming to express just how much they dislike it to their friends/followers ;-)
The top 10 states who feel the most negative about social media are:
- West Virginia
- New Jersey
Whether you love it or hate it, social media isn't going anywhere. It's a huge part of our lives and where a lot of breaking news happens. So I think if you hate it that bad, just stay off of it altogether. Otherwise, it's important to give your self a social media break from time to time. Think of it as a healthy choice-- it's good for the mind & soul. It's really not as hard as you think it will be.
