      and US-new isn't social media?

    2. Rene Heins

      simon sinek talks a lot about social media and its impact. How we are just now starting to see the long term affects on the younger generations. Eye opening stuff

    3. Ken Ramsley

      Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit. Except for US-new, I deleted all social media accounts years ago, and recently, I deleted my entire US-new channel content (7k+ subs) --- and apart from watching videos almost no one watches, I am winding down US-new views. Social media is 99.9999999% mind-numbing bullshit (I said that already -- but you cannot say that enough).

    4. Vic Jang

      Damn Casey your videos are like artworks. So pleasant to watch.

    5. Vic Jang

      After my 7-day honeymoon trip to a pacific island, I closed my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Best thing I've even done for sure.

    6. Jason Wale

      Casey, please can you do a follow on this? Fascinating insight into the the social media problem

      Deleting an app doesn't work You must delete your profile.

    13. Yassir Rossel

      *These apps are designed to be like this. It's a terrible thing! Don't use "social" media!!!!!*

      I thought he said : boner .........bonafide. oh shit😅😅😅

    15. Oscar

      Do NOT scroll down, focus on what you’re watching.

    16. Killer2600

      It's like smoking...People started doing it because their friends were doing it, then they got hooked and kept doing it even when some friends quit or wouldn't do it. Later researchers said it may be bad for you, then they said it is bad for you. Around the same time, a societal push to quit the habit began and has grown over time...Will Facebook become the next Marlboro??? P.S. I too have quit social media, the stuff isn't good for ya. I'd like to get others to quit but they ultimately have to want to quit.

    17. John Mateu

      Go ahead Casey! I quited Social Media a long time ago and no regrets... Well, I just check Twitter from time to time, but I deleted the mobile app and I log in through Safari Browser, so the experience is less appealing. BUT I deleted completely Facebook and Instagram. And my life is just waaay sooo much better. Sure, I don't get as much contact with long time friends, but the friends who really need to be there are always there. So just delete accounts. Without doubts, just do it! Also, do not disturb mode forever is a clever way to manage your phone. Except maybe for calls and VIP messages.

      @CaseyNeistat not related to this video I have a quick question. I am a South African ultra-distance trail runner (19th in the country according to the results at SA Trail running Champs Marathon distance at HoutBay) and a programming student. I am interested if you have ever considered running Comrades Marathon as your second half is a Capetonian? Would you ever be interested, if so when will you do it?. Regards David

    19. Andrew Nowotarski

      Casey i challenge you to do one full month no social apps no lap top either i havnt had any for 2 years an because of that i lost 150 pounds

    22. Malica Hamilton

      I spend over 6 hours a day on my phone .... it’s so addictive 😬 I really need to cut down I even set up that limit thing but I usually end up extending it 😅

    23. mike gam

      This is real

    24. TDA PHOTOGRAPHY

      Social media steals time most people are not aware of it.

    25. BLA͢K̵ILK͘

      Get off of the soul sucking facebook. Maybe after that we can consider you a real person. but now no. I personally have never subscribed to any social media or posted anything so FUCK EVERYONE!!! Gawd just watching your videos makes me sick.

      Isn’t US-new a social media?

    28. nickolassaakov360

      not going to lie I also got rid of my social media and I do the same as you Casey, and I got to say it feels good. it's tempting to get it back but in the end, it feels better.

    29. GAK

      The auto focus on this camera/lense is great!! What are you using in this video?

    30. THE ENTERTAINER TRA

      I've quit Facebook 2 years ago I feel Good and Better

    31. Spaghetti Monster

      "I use the word addiction lightly..." you obviously use the word "social media" lightly as well. You dont think youtube is social media? I dare you to quit.

    32. anonymous _

      Thanks for following the trend that i started, casey.

    33. Spencer Freebairn

      Thanks for being open about this!

    34. Sebastian

      I limit it to 5 mins per day. Done

    35. Alexwintersoldier

      Hi Casey, I am your big fan. I have been watching US-new for 4 years. I think I have a serious US-new addiction. Every day, I watch US-new til 11pm. And I don’t feel like I am myself anymore. So I think it’s time to change. I think it is a good choice to ask someone influenced me a lot to give me some advice. So, do you think deleting US-new on my phone and tablet is a good choice? Well, you might not answer me, but I have decided that I am officially deleting US-new from both of my mobile devices

    36. jason carden

      there's no white paint on your glasses ...

    37. DBOB

      Crazy good content. I don’t do anything but post. Not often. Lol 8:44 I laughed so hard I spit my spaghetti out. Ahahaha

    38. K T

      Glad you're quitting, put your phone in the trunk so you're not tempted, you don't need it, glued to you, plus distracted driving is worse than drunk driving,stats are real.please everyone I was left permanently disAbled by a distracted driver who was on his phone speeding, ran a red light and blew thru me in the crosswalk. I should be dead but I'm permanently disabled now and in poverty no insurance doesn't pay isn't fair. All avoidable just stupidity to drive and use a phone.

    39. osue69

      Bailed on fb and instagram early this year. Though it was for user interface reasons. Not a fan of instagram's restrictive picture size format. (Or maybe I'm missing how to us it properly?) And facebook's user interface feels like it's stuck in the aughts, while the rest of the online world is already evolving into the coming 2020s. As for using social media/sharing sites in general, like anything else in life, one's mileage may vary.

    40. Dave N

      going on 5 days w/o social media - i miss it but, I need to make it go away.

    41. Dk R

      Geogina who??

    42. Laf Lafovic

      interesting...the point is i just wasted 10min of my life watching this...so this is the last time i watched others people lives...good night and thank you.

    43. Randome things cats too

      Do not have social media

    44. Matt Owen

      I am going to try the same thing, I am always on instagram so I’m hoping just deleting it on my phone will keep my off it more. Then at night I can just use my laptop right before I go to bed during the time I’d already be on insta and go through hopefully more meaningfully since I haven’t been on it all day

    45. Marty McSonic

      Pfft. That's not quitting. You'll be back before you know it. Hit your smartphones with a brick and get a basic phone and plan - if you still can. "I'll just shoot up before I go to bed. I AM IN CONTROL". LOL

    46. Lazy Fingers

      I spent six years without a cellphone. And it was awesome, Now I have one,but there's no social media on it . The more I stay away from it the better I feel .

    47. jaime angeles

      I quit instagram in october. GL man.

    48. Marc Taillefer

      you should delete Facebook too btw... love your vidz, I have Zero social media apps and LOVE IT ! CHEERS

    49. Nate Gee

      people who say they're not particularly politically active are the ones who aren't affected. Enjoy sipping on the latte called privilege, Casey. I used to watch your videos, but the carelessness toward surrounding people is just shitty.

    50. Akhil Adulapuram

      I quitted everything only twitter and US-new now

    51. Oakgy P Gaming

      does that mean quit Instagram, twitter or Facebook?

    52. Shantanu Tonde

      Stop complaining, you make millions of dollars from social media. You could have it a lot worse. So just shut up

    64. Amabelle Claresta

      you actually work on social media.

    67. Aqim Ousman

      This is great! I will try to do the same! I wonder how this is going to turn my life. Hoping that it will be better!

    68. DegenWoW

      It's the insant aspect of those sites. That moves lot of reality-based things (even social ones) into those sites. Meaning, it moves it there, so you lose it by your own self in your real life. And voluntarily moves it with vision it's enough for your social life to be this way. It's an illusion though. It should stay where it should be, in outside world, not on a site. - THanks for watching

    69. Big Daddy Jesus

      U mean obsession. It's a mind disorder bro. U might need to get checked.

    70. John Leibe

      Twitter engineers openly admitted on camera they manipulate narrative to create tension, and sway elections, etc.

      Hope u have not deleted US-new because u dont't seen around

    73. jelly.x roast

      He earns from social media and now hes complaining

      1. DegenWoW

        He mentions the additional sites people spend whole day on other than youtube itself

    74. Stevin Balthazor

      Bruh, youtube is social media.

      1. Stevin Balthazor

        Do you know how many replies I have received on this this dumb comment? You know that US-new was originally designed as a social media, a way to share and watch what is going on in other people's lives. Here you can watch endless movies and shows, (With US-new Premium) and comment on videos. If you look at the replies on my comment, you will find that we are communicating. Just because someone is lying on their chair and on their desktop all day, I am sure that they will have at least one social interaction on a media device. If you would like the definition of social media, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." US-new falls under all definitions of social media.

      2. M K

        Disagree. Social media's primary purpose is a platform to "socialize". It commonly depends on "social" interaction with friends, family, strangers, etc. US-new's primary purpose is a platform to post video content. I never HAVE to "socialize" here unless I choose to. Here I can watch endless movies and shows, ignoring the comments, and totally forget about the outside world. For some US-new is the single most *antisocial* media platform there is.

      3. Stevin Balthazor

        I understand your comment, US-new is a way for creators to express themselves, and for Casey, US-new is his job. For example, making content that involves music is still a form of artistic expression, and that is a different type pf social media. I still believe that in some ways, US-new isn't social media. Making content that involves unboxing toys, in my opinion, is not a way that people can express themselves. It is just a trap for views. So DegenWoW, I do agree with you in some cases, youtube sometimes isn't as expressive as is meant to be.

      4. DegenWoW

        Sure, but none can be measured the same, I guess. Simple blog or personal website is a social Media then. Yet in my view social media is Clear giants like F, Ing and these kinds. For the effect they (in my view) have on human and humanity- Subjective, I Guess, But we can discuss, If you WIhs,, No hate needed Of Course-------=

      5. Stevin Balthazor

        I am usually not the person to hate comment, in fact I dislike it very much, but youtube was meant to be Googles first way for people to share things with the world. The definition of social media is, "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking." What you just explained was youtube, but in a more serious fashion. US-new falls under all the expectations of a social media and it always will. Google literally considers US-new social media.

      Finally someone influential realized how shit social media is, especially facebook.

    91. the surfing potato helo

      Does anybody know the song he ended/started the video with?

    95. Brown G

      People should deactivate Facebook. I've been without it for 7 years.

    96. Adam V

      Watched this video a little late but just decided to do the same, hope I see a difference In my life

    97. bridge4

      U have "a" problem? I think you have multiple problems, ser :-P

    98. selw0nk

      Leave this US-new channel then since it's Social Media too. That shit does not count if you still make videos for US-new.

    99. Katie Koballa

      The subconscious is always taking in whatever you’re looking at even if you don’t think you’re comparing yourself...you are. I’m 21 and deleted ALL of my social media and I have 1000x more clarity, I read more and my positive mental attitude has skyrocketed! And I focus on what really matters now like friends family and my future!!! 🤯

    100. Marcus Guckian

      Glad to see you make a video about this Casey. I was somewhat the same a few years ago, until I decided to use it at certain times for a certain amount of minutes. I felt that wait lift off my shoulders and have been enjoying everyday life that little bit more since then.
