29 Untold stories in 29 Days Campaign (active) #100conversations projects (active)
Social media has an impact on us individuals. Social media has an impact on our appearance, lifestyle and way of life. We have intentionally forgotten that everybody has a life outside of social media. Social media has contributed in some people making very costly decisions .Some may have adopted a feeling of inadequacy because of what they have seen on social media.
Research done by Global WebIndex shows that globally,”57.6% of the world’s population uses social media”. In October 2021, the average daily usage is of social media was recorded at 2 hours and 27 minutes. The hours recorded echo that social media has become a part of our daily lives.
We have allowed social media platforms to define what success means and set unnecessary standards of perfection. Some have lost the true meaning of gathering with loved ones because everyone needs to login at the table. We have stopped having meaningful and lengthy conversations with our friends every time we meet.
I miss the moments where we would just have conversations without notifications. Don’t get me wrong social media has changed our lives and businesses positively. The aspect of social media that I am referring to here is social media the “deceiver”.
Social media the “deceiver’ that has us believing that life is perfect and that nobody has flaws. The social media that puts pressure on you negatively. The social media that steals beautiful conversations at the dinner table. The social media that breathes distance, envy and jealousy. The social media that trolls innocent people and robs people of their monies using fake identities
In 2022, I think its time to make it a priority to use social media positively. This is because it will forever be a part of our lives. This family member is here to stay and don’t you think its time to set rules for this family member?
Let’s us use social media to our benefit and not destroy us in 2022.
