Often I find myself getting annoyed with social media…Social media is supposed to be a place to share moments with friends and loved ones, a place where people should be able to be themselves, a place where we should be safe or at least feel safe. But instead it is something so terrible I have considered letting it go all together. You can’t get on twitter, Facebook etc. without seeing a negative comment–whether it be a racist comment, sexist, trans-phobic, homophobic, etc. Don’t get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but when you take that privilege and use it negatively, it’s not okay.
Instead of using social media for good things, people decide they want to use it for irrelevant things like “clout”, it’s 2018, clout is only going to get you so far, if it even gets you somewhere. People also like to use social media to show how “woke” they are, I do not care how “woke” you are…if you’re not using that “woke-ness” for something useful, you’re pretty useless. STOP trying to be something you’re not.
Social media has turned into this terrible place where people are constantly trying to out-show each other, trying to see who has the most clout, trying to see who is the best looking couple, things that just do not matter…nothing that is going to help them progress in life at all.
People love to take to social media to complain about how the world is so bad, how this needs to change, how that needs to change….But complaining isn’t going to change a thing, how bout you take that energy and try to help your community? It’s not that hard people.
And if we’re being honest, social media is not the best place for your mental health…there have been multiple times where I’ve had to exit out of apps to keep myself sane…There are many people who have even taken their lives due to social media….Something’s gotta give.
I could go on and on about how bad social media is…but this would turn into an entire novel so I won’t hold you guys up…
What’s your least favorite thing about social media?
