British singer Laura Mvula wants millions of social networking obsessives to dump Facebook and Twitter and get on with their lives.

The singer/songwriter has almost 35,000 followers on Twitter.com and is also a keen user of photo-based Instagram.com, but she insists the time has come for everyone to stop obsessively posting online messages.

She tells Britain's Stella magazine, "I think we all have too much to say in our society. We are constantly encouraged to be vocal, have an opinion through Facebook or Twitter. It's out of our control... We all need to shut up and be quiet for a bit."
