Social media… the one place that you get to know all the ugly and the good about everyone. You stalk a person from their Facebook, instagram and twitter account and you get this feeling like you know them like the back of your hand. We tend to believe it all, forgetting that most of the times the life we portray on social media is nothing compared to the real thing…the behind the scenes of our life is much more complicated. Maybe some people’s lives are exactly the same way as we see on their instagram and twitter feed, but I can assure you, for majority of us, social media is the life we make up for ourselves.
You can see that it starts with something as simple as our names… Rock my world_not your gal, something something luscious, Home boy something…see what I mean, it’s mostly all made up.
Now you find those of us that like to know everything about everyone finishing our data bundles to find out what a certain someone has been up to for the last 7 years, yes we go that far trust me. We see what’s up and we decide to give a title. The same way we caption our pictures, we decide to caption people’s lives based on their Facebook and instagram feed. Now this is where we get it wrong. A person’s life on social media is not exactly the same as the life they live. People are going through things people! and the fact that they don’t tweet them out doesn’t mean their lives are perfect…
DON’T BE QUICK TO JUDGE; WHAT YOU KNOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS JUST HALF OF IT. Yes on Facebook she uploaded something and mentioned something about a great life. Well at times that life is not as great as you think so don’t go around putting captions on people’s lives from what they choose to show you. That bright smile that you see on their profile picture can be a cry for help for all we know.
People choose to take a selfie and fake a life.
So be careful what you think or say about the lives you see on your news feed.
