Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who rocketed to prominence because of her social media savvy, also acknowledges that social media platforms pose a “public health risk to everybody.”

In an interview with the Yahoo News “Skullduggery” podcast on Sunday, the 29-year-old said she has even given up on Facebook.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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,” said Ocasio-Cortez, whose campaign still has an account on the social media platform but who mostly uses Instagram and Twitter to connect with her followers.

“Social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” she continued. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3, with screen time. But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”
