Meghan Markle is getting candid about her interactions online.
The 39-year-old Duchess of Sussex opened up in a virtual chat with Fortune during the “Most Powerful Next Gen Summit” on Tuesday (October 13).
During the chat, she revealed why she has avoided social media in recent years.
“For my own self-preservation, I have not been on social media for a very long time. I had a personal account years ago, which I closed down and then we had one through the institution and our office that was in the U.K. that wasn’t managed by us —that was a whole team — and so I think that comes with the territory for the job you have,” she explained.
“I’ve made a personal choice to not have any account, so I don’t know what’s out there, and many ways that’s helpful for me. I have a lot of concerns for people that have become obsessed with it. And it is so much a part of our daily culture for so many people that it’s an addiction like many others. There are very few things in this world where you call the person who is engaging with it a user,” she went on to say.
