In praise of the weeklong social media break

Perhaps your phone has delivered your weekly Screen Time report and you know, in your heart, that it's time to take a break from social media. This is good. A little break is nice every now and then.

MoviePass parent’s CEO discusses the service’s rocky year

In the space of a few months, MoviePass went from being the hottest startup on the block to a cautionary tale about growing too big, too fast.
