Social media has changed the way we live, hasn’t it? Not only in our daily routines but in how we see the world. The younger generation or generation “Z” we call them now seem to think that what we see on social media is what we get, but as we all know it is exactly the opposite or sometimes the opposite to what we think it maybe. Or is it just plain boredom that we reach to our phones and start scrolling to the point where we actually find something remotely interesting to read or look at, and then either like or comment to a meaningless post that has some sort of visually appeal to it and then just move onto the next post that we sort of like and then do the same thing to or is it our ADHD kicking in for the few moments that we spend on our phones to pass the time away.
Me personally I am not too sure why we do spend so much time on our phones when we don’t need to, I try not to personally, but if you are on public transport and need to pass the time away, who doesn’t pull out their phone and have a look at Instagram, Facebook and whatever else you may have on your phone.
So, do we actually need social media? And does it do anything for society moving forward post Covid? Well, I am not here to answer that question for you but to put it up for discussion. Hopefully you won’t knock someone’s opinion in the process, like mine usually does, but we live in a free world, right? Or should I say in a world that is full of social media commentators that think whatever they write will change someone’s mind set forever and in turn make it a better place for you and me to live in
Food for thought?
