Did you know…
More people in the world own mobile devices than toothbrush. Funny, right?
Another such platform that has contributed to the same is “Social media”. It gives competition to all our necessities in life. Before we get up from our bed to actually freshen up, we need our phone to check the notifications of the number of likes or comments on our post.
Believe it or not, you would have definitely come across these kinds of people:
- Someone who isn’t satisfied until someone clicks 50 pictures and they end up deleting 49 of them to finally keep the remaining one picture as their WhatsApp DP,
- Someone who can’t stand the same DP for more than 2 days and needs a change every now and then,
- Someone who doesn’t like to repeat dresses to any event because s/he thinks that it’ll pull down his/her image.
- Someone who only meets people to click selfies with them and upload them on snapchat or Instagram.
- OR most importantly, someone who clicks pictures of everything s/he eats or drinks because the new mantra is, “Camera eats first”.
Well, even the people who are reading this would fall under at least one of the above because accept it or not, this is how we all live today.
Pictures definitely play a vital role in making memories but in real, are you actually living the moment, or your camera is getting that privilege?
Sometimes, I feel that I should just deactivate all my social media accounts and live peacefully for a while. But you know how it is when you have many fans and followers. You can’t disappoint them, right? 😛 Just kidding. XD
It’s not about choosing the extreme side, whether it’s being addictive to social media or being completely “anti-social media”. You know, I always get pissed when something like this happens to me. Even while staying in the same house but in separate rooms, the other person pings you if s/he needs something. That’s height of being lazy, as well as being dependent on your phone and messaging to fulfil all your needs.
I always remember what my dad used to say,
“People staying 1000 kms away from you are brought closer by social media, but the ones sitting right next you at dinner table, aren’t really beside you.”
Think about it!
