The thing I have found to be extremely helpful is to very carefully curate who who I follow - in particular I don't friend/follow anyone I have any sort of regular f2f interactions with - family, coworkers, neighbors. I use it exclusively to keep up with out-of-state friends, others involved with the same sort of niche hobbies, that sort of thing. Avoids sooo much drama.

Interesting approach. I have to wonder though, if such a thoughtful strategy is needed to stay sane what else is unhealthy?

I always thought the way the parent poster uses social media is the way it's supposed to to be used. That's the only way I've ever used it.

I'm not so sure that's the real design. Any application I use tries to addict me to it. I think it is more for people to show off.
