    Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit. Except for USdownload, I deleted all social media accounts years ago, and recently, I deleted my entire USdownload channel content (7k+ subs) --- and apart from watching videos almost no one watches, I am winding down USdownload views. Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit (I said that already -- but you cannot say that enough).

    It's like smoking...People started doing it because their friends were doing it, then they got hooked and kept doing it even when some friends quit or wouldn't do it. Later researchers said it may be bad for you, then they said it is bad for you. Around the same time, a societal push to quit the habit began and has grown over time...Will Facebook become the next Marlboro??? P.S. I too have quit social media, the stuff isn't good for ya. I'd like to get others to quit but they ultimately have to want to quit.

    Go ahead Casey! I quited Social Media a long time ago and no regrets... Well, I just check Twitter from time to time, but I deleted the mobile app and I log in through Safari Browser, so the experience is less appealing. BUT I deleted completely Facebook and Instagram. And my life is just waaay sooo much better. Sure, I don't get as much contact with long time friends, but the friends who really need to be there are always there. So just delete accounts. Without doubts, just do it! Also, do not disturb mode forever is a clever way to manage your phone. Except maybe for calls and VIP messages.

    @CaseyNeistat not related to this video I have a quick question. I am a South African ultra-distance trail runner (19th in the country according to the results at SA Trail running Champs Marathon distance at HoutBay) and a programming student. I am interested if you have ever considered running Comrades Marathon as your second half is a Capetonian? Would you ever be interested, if so when will you do it?. Regards David

    Hi Casey, I am your big fan. I have been watching USdownload for 4 years. I think I have a serious USdownload addiction. Every day, I watch USdownload til 11pm. And I don’t feel like I am myself anymore. So I think it’s time to change. I think it is a good choice to ask someone influenced me a lot to give me some advice. So, do you think deleting USdownload on my phone and tablet is a good choice? Well, you might not answer me, but I have decided that I am officially deleting USdownload from both of my mobile devices

I should be dead but I'm permanently disabled now and in poverty no insurance doesn't pay isn't fair. All avoidable just stupidity to drive and use a phone.

    Bailed on fb and instagram early this year. Though it was for user interface reasons. Not a fan of instagram's restrictive picture size format. (Or maybe I'm missing how to us it properly?) And facebook's user interface feels like it's stuck in the aughts, while the rest of the online world is already evolving into the coming 2020s. As for using social media/sharing sites in general, like anything else in life, one's mileage may vary.

    It's the insant aspect of those sites. That moves lot of reality-based things (even social ones) into those sites. Meaning, it moves it there, so you lose it by your own self in your real life. And voluntarily moves it with vision it's enough for your social life to be this way. It's an illusion though. It should stay where it should be, in outside world, not on a site. - THanks for watching

    Do you know how many replies I have received on this this dumb comment? You know that USdownload was originally designed as a social media, a way to share and watch what is going on in other people's lives. Here you can watch endless movies and shows, (With USdownload Premium) and comment on videos. If you look at the replies on my comment, you will find that we are communicating. Just because someone is lying on their chair and on their desktop all day, I am sure that they will have at least one social interaction on a media device. If you would like the definition of social media, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." USdownload falls under all definitions of social media.

    Disagree. Social media's primary purpose is a platform to "socialize". It commonly depends on "social" interaction with friends, family, strangers, etc. USdownload's primary purpose is a platform to post video content. I never HAVE to "socialize" here unless I choose to. Here I can watch endless movies and shows, ignoring the comments, and totally forget about the outside world. For some USdownload is the single most *antisocial* media platform there is.

    I understand your comment, USdownload is a way for creators to express themselves, and for Casey, USdownload is his job. For example, making content that involves music is still a form of artistic expression, and that is a different type pf social media. I still believe that in some ways, USdownload isn't social media. Making content that involves unboxing toys, in my opinion, is not a way that people can express themselves. It is just a trap for views. So DegenWoW, I do agree with you in some cases, youtube sometimes isn't as expressive as is meant to be.

    Sure, but none can be measured the same, I guess. Simple blog or personal website is a social Media then. Yet in my view social media is Clear giants like F, Ing and these kinds. For the effect they (in my view) have on human and humanity- Subjective, I Guess, But we can discuss, If you WIhs,, No hate needed Of Course-------=

    I am usually not the person to hate comment, in fact I dislike it very much, but youtube was meant to be Googles first way for people to share things with the world. The definition of social media is, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." What you just explained was youtube, but in a more serious fashion. USdownload falls under all the expectations of a social media and it always will. Google literally considers USdownload social media.
