Anything without limit is often dangerous. So is social media. One must know one’s own limits and adhere to self-discipline on social media too. “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. I Cor 10:23
Entertainment through Social media is acceptable as long as it does not affect our daily work or studies. Finally, Friends, “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (Phil. 4:8-9).
