Emma Watson is a smart girl who was growing up in the rays of fame and total popularity, that’s why she highly appreciates her private identity. As a rule, social media often take off this simple right from users, and Emma warns that network may be extremely dangerous for the personality.

The star of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has been promoting her upcoming film The Circle, in which she takes on the role of Mae, a young girl hired to work at the most powerful internet company in the world. This story explores our addiction to technology and the dark side of social media, and the film releases today, 28 April.

So while talking to Interview magazine, Emma spoke openly about how important it is to hold back from thrusting your entire life on platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

‘The story of my life has been of public interest, which is why I have been so passionate about having a private identity.’

The 27-year-old actress noted that she loves social media because of its ability to bring people together, but using Facebook or Instagram in the wrong way is incredibly dangerous. It is pretty logical to conclude that user’s attention is his/her most important resource.

Emma confessed that prior to starting the press tour, she deleted an email app from her phone, the actress really tried to create serious boundaries from it, because it is addictive.

‘We need to make sure that we are using technology, and technology is not using us,’

said Emma Watson.
