Let’s be real for a minute…just how much time do you spend scrolling through Facebook? It is probably more time than you want to admit or even realize!

Facebook Accounts to follow that will improve your intelligence
You can not go a single day on Facebook, without encountering someone’s awful grammar. I don’t mean a simple typo, or even the misuse of your and you’re or there/their/they’re. I am talking about darn near impossible to read posts.
Grammarly, a digital writing assistant helps 30 million people write clearer and more effectively every day. I have the app on my phone, and it even corrects my social media posts. It is wonderful and 6.8 million followers agree.
The National Geographic has been around for a long time. 130 years to be exact! I remember getting the magazine, filled with pictures of animals and other articles, which helped aid in their mission to further the knowledge and awareness of our world. They have a Facebook page with 49 million followers who have access to some of the most intelligent content on the web.
NASA has some of the most brilliant minds at work. They have been the reason we have explored the universe and learned so many things about our planet. 25.9 million followers continue to expand their horizons into the galaxy by following the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

I did promise you that Facebook had the potential to make us smarter, and I wasn’t kidding! Hopefully, you found some people on this list that you decided were worth clicking the follow button for. While you are on Facebook though, it might be a good time to evaluate who is on your Facebook follow list currently.
I know I spend far more time aimlessly scrolling through Facebook. I make it a point though to check who I still have on there. Is it someone who I don’t know how they even got on there, to begin with, and the few times I see something from them it makes me mad?
Guess what, we can delete them! I am not talking about deleting people because they do not agree with you, or creating a vacuum. However, if you do not get anything meaningful from following someone, and you are going to invest so much time into it, it might be time to just let it go.
