While networks like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are often championed for bringing people together across the world, these ads from Social Media Awareness touch on social media and isolation.

In order to visually represent this topic, some of the most popular social media platforms have been illustrated as different kinds of fences that are meant to signify blocks to the outside world. In these ads, Social Media Awareness claims that "Social media contributes to social isolation," as well as other undesirable things such as loneliness and depression.

This colorful series of hand-drawn advertisements from Social Media Awareness speaks to how social media use can become extremely consuming and it's worth becoming mindful of how it can be used in a way that's both balanced and healthy.
