Meghan Markle Warns of Dangers of Social Media Addiction

Meghan Markle Warns of Dangers of Social Media Addiction

Meghan Markle wiped her socials when she became part of the Royal family after marrying Prince Harry. But she’s not looking back, even as she and Harry call the shots in their new independent life.

Appearing at “Fortune’s” virtual Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit, Meghan opened up about why she ditched social media. In her eyes, social media use can be as demanding as any other addiction, so she’s glad she made the “personal choice” to sign off for the sake of her mental health.

Not that she’s knocking social media altogether, just the “obsession.” To those building their brands online, or engaging with their friends, Meghan’s advice is just to stay positive, warning that engaging with negativity online has “lasting effects.”

  • “I have a lot of concerns for people that have become obsessed with it,” Meghan said. “And it is so much a part of our daily culture for so many people that it’s an addiction like many others.”
