Advice from Shaykh Fawzan hafidhullah pertaining to social media

Question: I want from the Shaikh an advice for the sisters and brothers who participate in social media. What is your opinion on that? May Allah reward you

Answer: “Evils have occurred from this [social media] and as it is well-known, it has the involvement of those who are misguided, the callers to misguidance, and the callers to fitnah. So beware of this social media and do not use the cell-phone except for calling and responding [to calls]. As for taking the cell-phone [in order] to accept these messages, this nonsense, and these distractions, then this is not necessary. Evils have come from it”
