Social Media vs Reality
Social media is a part of our lives. People spend hours each day on it, but they don't always understand how it is affecting them. The biggest problem with social media is the fact that people see only what they want to see and hear only what they want to hear. Another problem is that people often have a distorted view of reality because of what they see, which can be more fake than real life. Another issue with social media is that people tend to judge others based on the way they look and not what's inside them. Social media has become such an integral part of society that many people have forgotten what it was like before we had access to phones, computers and tablets. The first social network was created in 1997 by two college students at Stanford University as a way for people to connect online through email accounts (at this point most people still didn't have internet access). They called their creation Six Degrees after the theory that everyone in the world could be connected by six steps or fewer.
Six Degrees As time passed, more platforms emerged and became popular with different demographics: Facebook for older generations; Twitter for younger people who wanted quick updates; Instagram for those who wanted pictures instead of text posts; Snapchat for teens who wanted privacy from adults because content disappears after 24 hours on average - so if someone posts something inappropriate then no one else would see it again once deleted by user himself/herself (or automatically deleted after 24 hours).
Social media is a great way to connect with people and share your life, but it's also easy to get caught up in the hype of social media. The biggest problem with social media is the fact that people see only what they want to see and hear only what they want to hear. This makes them have a warped view of reality, which can influence their decisions later on down the road if they don't take time out from their phones every once in awhile. There have been studies done where researchers asked people questions about themselves based on what was posted on their profiles; these results showed how much information was actually accurate compared against how much wasn't true!
Meta/Facebook People often post the best moments of their lives and don't post about their bad days, relationships or jobs. This creates an unrealistic image for others to live up to and causes people to feel inadequate when they compare themselves with others on social media. Another issue with social media is that people tend to judge others based on the way they look and not what's inside them. Many people have become so accustomed to seeing other people through filters, it's easy for them to forget that there is more than meets the eye when it comes to someone else's life.
Twitter It can be easy for us as well as our friends or family members who are struggling with this issue themselves; however, we should all make an effort not only for ourselves but also for those around us who may be affected by this problem as well. If you see someone posting something negative about themselves or making fun at themselves, don't just scroll past like nothing happened because chances are there was some sort of reason behind why they posted that particular picture in the first place (and sometimes it has nothing do with being vain)
Instagram Since social media took over, the world has changed so much. The way we communicate with each other, live our lives and think about things has been completely altered by social media. It has also changed the way we work and shop for goods and services. In conclusion, social media has changed the planet. It has made it so much easier for people to connect with each other and share their experiences. But there are also some negative aspects of it that we need to keep in mind when we use these platforms or else our lives could become more distorted than they already are!
