Ocasio-Cortez: Children under three who use social media at risk

Children under the age of three years old use social media? According to alleged health expert Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez they do — and they are placing themselves at risk by doing so. We all are, the freshman representative said Sunday during an interview on Yahoo News’s “Skullduggery” podcast.

Ocasio-Cortez revealed during the segment that she has cut back on her own use of social media, acknowledging:

I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook. And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. I gave up on it.

She confessed however to still suffering the occasional relapse:

Like every once in a while, you’ll see me hop on Twitter on the weekends, but for the most part, I take consumption of content, when it comes to consumption and reading, I take the weekends off. And so I’m not, like, scrolling through trying to read everything online that journalists are writing on weekends. I try to do that during the workweek.

So what are some of the health risks, according to Ocasio-Cortez, who is neither a doctor nor plays one on TV? “Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

No doubt she is parroting some popular health website, such as Healthline, though the part about three-year-olds being the most vulnerable to social media-related maladies is probably a misreading of something she saw somewhere.

Hey, does social media use caused learning disabilities? If so, that might explain much about the congresswoman’s own addiction.
