Social media, we’ve all heard of it. Most of us are pretty much addicted to it wether you’d like to admit it or not. When was the last time you went a day without checking your facebook notifications, ya memes, your snapchats, stalked your exe’s snapchat story or envied a celebrity on instagram? I mean come on, can you even remember? I’m not trying to make you feel guilty here, I’m just bringing a topical subject to the surface. We’re addicted. And in all honesty, its pathetic. I see it as a waste of time, and maybe you do too, but I still do it. I often become frustrated at my lack of being able to resist checking my notications. I think about all the things I could be doing, things I enjoy even. I could read so many more books, write, Hell, when was the last time you did something new, a hobby? God Forbid you start A HOBBY INSTEAD OF CHECKING YOUR NOTICATIONS! Also how sad is it that people determine their worth based on HOW MANY LIKES THEY GET
I feel sorry for the generation growing up during the social media craze. The era of facebook profiles, instagram, snapchats, you name it. Luckily, I caught only the end of it. These days, kids spend more waking moments glued to a computer or smartphone screen than they do actually socialising. I’m sorry, but socialising these days seems to be instant messaging constantly even when you live in the same city. Is this how relationships are now? I see people even my age, developing ‘relationships’ but messaging each other via messenger or snapchat and I think its disgusting. How the fuck do you develop a relationship, a real relationship with someone through a damn screen. But this is what socialising is these days, who cares if you haven’t seen your ‘friend’ in 8 months as long as you instant message them frequently. No. I don’t agree. That’s not a friendship.
