10 Social Media Accounts You Should Be Following In The New Year

News Hub Creator 1d

Social media indeed has become a huge part of everyday living. While it originated as a way for friends and family members to keep up with each other, it has evolved into becoming a lifestyle tool that has the potential to not only enhance the quality of life but also help individuals develop personally and professionally. This article focuses on Instagram, even though these accounts all have Facebook and twitter accounts. 

Instagram is not without negatives. There is a lot of pressure on people to appear or think a certain way. If people are considered different due to their views, there is a high likelihood of them being cyberbullied. On the personal side, some people have struggled mentally and emotionally from the pressure by social media to be seen as equal to their peers. 

One way to avoid the social media pressures on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat etc is to sift through the noise and have the right accounts on your timeline. In real life, if you do not agree with someone’s views strongly or feel uncomfortable around them, you would move away or cut them off. The same should apply to social media. Follow the accounts that add value to you and avoid accounts that make you feel a negative way. 

These 10 accounts will give you knowledge, laughter and motivation which will help you 2020. They will provide the much needed value needed to make your Instagram timeline and space a much healthier and happier place.
