An ex-Facebook boss said social media is harming our society. His job was to get more Facebook users. He feels bad about this. Twenty years ago, people talked to each other. Today, they message and don't talk. People worry too much about what others think. They get sad if people don't like the photos they post.

The man wants people to take a break from social media. He wants people to like each other instead of liking online "likes". Fake news is changing the world. A lot of "news" is untrue. People post lies about other people. This is a global problem. The man banned his children from social media. But, he said Facebook was good.
