American singer and actress Selena Gomez has shared her thoughts on the “terrible” effect social media has had on her generation and is of the opinion that people take a break from it.

Gomez made this known while speaking at the Cannes Film Festival revealed that she gets “scared” when she sees what young people are being exposed to on social media.

“They’re not aware of the news or anything going on. It’s selfish I don’t wanna say selfish because it feels rude but it’s dangerous for sure. I think our world is going through a lot, obviously. But for my generation, specifically, social media has been terrible,” she said.

On what she could do to improve the social media environment, she said, it is “impossible” at this point to make it safe.  “I’m very grateful I have the platform in any way, I can still share things I’m passionate about. I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. I like to be intentional with it.” “I see these young girls, I’ll meet them and they’re just devastated dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice.”

Gomez also adviced that: “It can be great in moments, but I would just be careful and allow yourself some time limits when you should use it and when not.”
