Can you handle going one week without posting on Facebook?

With phones getting more and more high-performance and strong wifi being ever more omnipresent internet life has replaced real life.

On average about 80% of the time we should be working or living is lost to aimless scrolling through our feed because it’s just so attention grabbing with infinite content made for us.

Many cases of internet dependencies are arising and people are spending less time doing simple enjoyable activities like reading books, going out into nature or learning a new activity like surfing.

The winner will be randomly selected but people can increase their chances of winning by not posting stuff on their social medias for a few days.
