Digital entertainment sucks. They designed the platform to make us feel addictive. The moment we finish watching a video on Youtube, we most likely click another video that is recommended by the algorithm. If only we can remove all video recommendation.

The moment we watch 1 shorts on YouTube or TikTok, we are urged to swipe up and continue wasting our time on other videos. Thankfully TikTok can easily be deleted from our Phone, but not YouTube. If only we can delete Youtube App from our Android smartphone.

Instagram is no different. Whenever we see our phone’s home screen, we subconsciously tap Instagram App to browse entertaining but useless image. We can switch to browser to open Instagram, so it become less addictive.

Can’t blame them though. It is their source of revenue after all.
