Social media – The unquenchable thirst of today’s generation.
Today, we use social media to fulfill our perceived social needs. We talk, we text, we chat, we browse, we surf, we like, we comment, we share, we pin, we tweet; everything we do is just to seek a sense of inclusion but when we step away from it, we see ourselves in a world of confusion.
The time we spend, the posts we share, the pictures we like, the comments we post are to establish a presence on the social network. We seek someone else’s validation to believe who we are but the image we project on our social media – Is that who you really are?
Today, the degree of social networking is govenered by the friends you have on facebook. The degree of influence and leadership is governed by the followers you have on Twitter. The number of pictures and likes in your Instagram feed govern how interesting your life is.
But, in all the effort we make to remain connected with our so-called friends of the virtual world, ARE WE REALLY CONNECTED IN THE REAL WORLD?
