Social Media Hype


If you’re anything like me, you have the social media bug.

You love to post, you love to tweet, you’ve got a Tumblr, an Instagram, a Snapchat, and probably anything else that you can use to express yourself. (I mean, here I am writing on a blog) Social media is just a dangerous place for a creative over-thinker.

Well, if you’re even more like me, you also despise social media.

Here’s the reasoning: Yes, social media is an incredible tool. You can promote events and causes close to your heart. You can inspire thousands through a click of a button. Yet, people take out the time to pull others down, to post every single movement they make, to tweet what they could be experiencing around them.

So, where’s the line? Where do you stop and say it’s too much?

It’s huge to recognize that social media is all about what people choose to show you. It’s not necessarily the whole truth but rather the tailored truth. Or is it even the truth?

Social media makes it incredibly easy to copy. That picture you just liked could be something that was reblogged over a million times or edited for hours.

Sure, it’s easy to get lost in the addiction. (I’m guilty as charged) But what are you really trying to prove? You might have 4,000 followers but who are you as a person? Show me that and then we’ll talk.
