"Social media has made me miserable and I had it all – and I was miserable, because if you let yourself be defined by numbers, you let yourself be defined by something that is not pure, not real and that is not love." Words spoken by Instagram model/Social Media star Essena O'Neill.

Essena had over half a million followers on her Instagram and hundreds of thousands of subscribers on YouTube which meant she was making a living through Social Media and YouTube. With social media fame and money, Essena described her life as unhappy and fake. The message Essena tries to convey to her followers is to put their phones down for a week and actually meet people in real life.

Madison Beer, who has heard of Essena's story, has over 3.4 Million followers on her Instagram. And she recently condemned internet trolls for body shaming her.

What Madison has to say about Essena and being a Social Media star is very interesting. Please check it out here…
