    Ways to feel more in control of your social media apps

    I shared the following post on my Instagram feed (@nadineecohome) and wanted to provide more detail here. The average user spends just under 2 hours and 30 minutes on social media a day. This length of time has likely increased during a worldwide pandemic too, as we’re spending more time at home and less time out.
