Truth or Dare [Social Media Use and Habits]


Truth or Dare [Social Media Use and Habits]


Truth or Dare is a popular F.U.N game.

You must be familiar with it, yes?

It is used as an ice breaker or just a feel good activity at home or with friends. Here, it will be presented with a twist to suit you – a Muslim Ambassador. In shaa Allah, it will give an opportunity for reflection on your lifestyle and habits as a believer.

Because nothing in the life of a believer is done without purpose.

Today’s focus will be on social media use and habits. Your ideas on future fun topics are most welcome.

So, are you a social media addict? How many social media channels are you signed on to? Do you spent most of your quality time on such sites? Is it a positive, productive and fulfilling digital experience for you? So many questions to ponder on as a person who needs to value time in this temporary life.

It’s time to P.L.A.Y.

Reveal the truth or carry out the dare.

And share your choice in the comments section.

    I use Social Media a great deal for my business. My family think I’m an addict but I disagree. Maybe the first step is to admit you have a problem! hahahah!
    I do enjoy the fact that I can keep in touch with my cousins and family across the world.

      Hahaha… you are right indeed! Would love to know how many hours you spent on it today.

    Taking the dare! switched off my phone for today! Since I have been spending a lot of time on my phone and my son has started noticing it too! So switched off my phone so I dont have to check my instagram and Facebook CONSTANTLY.

      Good for you! Well done masha Allah. Its no good for the little ones to pick up bad digital habits from the adults in their lives. It is a constant battle fighting the urge to check, check and check updates.

    Truth- hmmm well, I’m online for couple of minutes at a time because I have three kids at home, whom I homeschool. My youngest is one years old, who loves my attention, so there isn’t a time I’m online for more than 5 mins. If I added up the times, I think maybe 1-2 hours a day or less. I could be wrong lol.

      I love that… ‘short bursts of quality time’ spent on social media.

    I can easily take the dare. 5 hours is easy to do. I prefer to switch off my internet when I am going to bed, and it allows me to sleep without any notifications ringing. And I only switch on my internet after I have prayed fajr and read my duas and Quran.
    As for how many hours on social media. I can’t say exactly how much, as I will be on it here and there, during the day. If i had to add it all up, I wouldn’t know how long but I don’t think it will reach 10 hours.

      Haha interesting… I love your daring attitude. I love to put mine on ‘airplane mode too’ or simply switch off.

    On average I think I spend 2 hours a day on Instagram! Maybe more :-/ What can I say I love looking at photos!

    1. Amina Edota April 2, 2017

      I only got active on Instagram this year but yes I love the visual appeal. Can’t help it too 🙂

    I’m mostly active on Facebook and WhatsApp only. Admittedly, it’s so easy to lose track of time while on social media, but I’m on the look out, in shaa Allah.

    Interesting yet challenging to many 🙂 I’m not an addict to social media but in a way, I’m connected to it, especially, with Instagram. I spend time reading blogs. I don’t stalk people or waste time in FB or Twitter. I make it productive. However I admit that i do idle online, but not in social media all the time. 🙂

  8. Rimsha March 31, 2017

    What an interesting idea! I think i’ve probably already spent about 10 hours on social media today :O It sounds like a lot when I say it out loud, damn.

    1. Amina Edota March 31, 2017

      Woow 10 hours! Such a thief of our productive hours and focus. It’s so easy to browse away isn’t it? Especially on mobile… Social media is an addiction we can live without.

    Truth — Less than an hour or two for the day and past few days so far ever since I’ve deleted my Instagram account and my Facebook account being a dummy profile now for my pages 🙂

    1. Amina Edota March 31, 2017

      Thumbs up to you. Like seriously? That’s such a super duper measure to take. I’m sure you have more productive hours and less distractions to deal with online.

    I use Facebook and Instagram mostly and Twitter sometimes bur not too much. For me social media is the only way of socialising because I don’t have any friends where I am living nowadays.
