It’s no secret that social media is taking over our lives.
In this day and age we go online for everything from news to shopping, even everyday conversation. Most of these websites we visit encourage your interaction from social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
How many hours do you waste on browsing through unnecessary things on social media? A lot of hours that could be used for something more useful. The average smartphone user checks Facebook 14 times every day, and over 500 million tweets are posted every day.
Overuse of social media might lead us to having a future with almost no real conversations. Some would say it’s easier to talk hiding behind our profiles, as we can create an image of ourself that has nothing to do with the reality.
I won’t deny the fact that social media networks do help with keeping in touch with those far away or learning something new, but we are escaping realities and diving deeper into the virtual realities.
