    I think a lot of it is escapism. Most of us live in countries with shambolic economies and outrageous housing markets where we work long hours just to live. Being able to exit that whilst you're tired from the comfort of your own home is a much valued commodity.

      If you use it uncritically or mindlessly, yes (as with everything in life i guess). If you are mindful about it, it can be beneficial.

          I guess it can quickly suck you in, so it's probably rare for people to be mindful about it. I maybe see it something like eating in areas where food is abundant and easily accessible. I don't think many people really eat mindfully. We eat quickly and uncritically a lot of times. We eat what is convenient or easiest at the time and we use socia media because it's convenient or easiest at the time. But that doesn't mean we can't or don't try to discpline ourselves about it. And when you do that, when you think about it and act accordingly with your insights, you are already trying to be mindful. Even this discussion is a part of that process. For me the benefits of having social media is the ease of contacting friends I don't often see and having a platform that encourages me to develop or maintain a hobbie (like photography for example). Plus it's a place where you can find people you can relate to. If you to adapt your use around these needs without ignoring your other needs, wants and responsabilities in life, that to me is mindful use. It's really hard to be 100% mindful tho, but perfection is overrated anyway.
