    This is why beside Facebook I don't use any other social media. It has dumbed down society. I mean how pathetic are you to post fake pics?

    Sadly many don’t use social media for the positive aspect – connecting w/ far away family & friends. It’s nice I can post or talk about what’s going on to my relatives or far away siblings or friends and not have to send things individually or else that would take a lot of time that I just don’t have enough of. And also be able to see what’s going on with them and choose to make conversation on it if I want to. Using social media just for attention and to make up some life is using it for the wrong reasons and can only hurt you in the end. Use it for yourself because that’s the main reason and then use it for connecting with people who matter. I don’t follow trends and “trendy people” a lot of that is meant for Twitter (which I don’t use) anyway. If people would seek a more positive reason for it and have enough confidence to not compare their life to everyone else’s they would enjoy it more and if you can’t do that then yeah, don’t use it. It hurts my brain imagining being that fake or creating a scene just for a picture or likes, if you do that please get help.

    I think we all want to feel famous and loved even just for a moment. Though what's the point if you feel sad after turning off the screen ?

  • I'm at my boat watching people visiting relatives on a yacht.  Instead of enjoying themselves & living in the moment they chose to spend half their day documenting the experiences (a boat, water fowl, trees, etc.) and uploading it to people who don't really give a f-ck.  What a hollow existence!

  • The social media sites I'm on are just for me to see memes and animal videos (and maybe 1 kpop group or 2)…I find it hard to trust these very happy people behind the screens these days😅

  • One year , no social app … hv only whatsapp to talk real friends and family and to hv connectivity with office mates

    Social media are normally the best parts of someones life. If you honestly think it's not then that's your problem. Obviously there is lying and just showing the best bits. Two very different things.

  • Wow anyone will do anything for some stupid heart from people they hardly or dont know. I am soooooooo happy I am free of social media. Now I live happier more confident and it's so annoying to see everyone doing the same thing. Such fake people we are around. That's why I'm introvert.

  • There are so many comments which are against Instagram and who hasn't it?
    I haven't had Instagram anymore and my life goes on. Now I am watching "just" videos at YouTube. Who else?

    Sorry for my bad English😅

  • I have Instagram but I tend to take pics of when I've been on holiday or spending time with family. Taking a picture just so you can lie to make yourself look interesting is just ridiculous. Suppose everyone's different

  • Cyprienna Parfaite Zufor Mbeuda says:

    oohh shut up, now you have used youtube to post this instead of spending time with your friends or family, and by doing so we are still using Youtube to watch this video, these are things we all do! So don't be fake moralists

  • A lady who prays the Divine Mercy Chaplet says:

    Envy obviously keep us trapped into this fake social media life. We see someone's nice picture, so we post a nice picture of our own to trigger envy in others and make us feel better. Stop it and pray the Rosary.

  • Some of the happiest people you see on Instagram, are the saddest people in reality. And that my friend, is the reality.

  • This is the reason i have a social media but don't use it, instead i make a fanacc and fake account to see something good

    I ve been wondering all my life what is so interesting on the internet that keeps people glued to the screens of their smartphones. It barely takes a minute to do necessary things like checking the email, answer some messages Than what ? Social media sites have become some kind of addiction. That's for sure.

  • This reminds me of the time when i was in santorini. There were 2 girls. Its was like 12 degrees out but both of them had short dresses on and they took pictures of each other with big smiles on. Soon as the "shooting was done" they looked mean and talked about how cold it is.
