6 WAYS SOCIAL MEDIA CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOUR VIEW ON YOURSELF AND PEOPLE

(WARNING: MIGHT BE TRIGGERING TO SOME PEOPLE). Social media is often loved by many people, but is it really as great as you think? Learn about the 6 WAYS SOCIAL MEDIA CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOUR VIEW ON YOURSELF AND PEOPLE here and I listed them in no particular order.

1. Social media allows you to connect with more people online, but you may start feeling lonely if you don’t connect with people in real life more.

Communicating with people on social media may fill your loneliness, but that’s usually only temporary. Soon enough, you probably will want to get more close with this person in real life. Often, that can be hard to do so because of many miles between the two of you and not having enough money to go where they are. Or you maybe too afraid of the risks on meeting with people in real life you first met online.

2. It can be easy to confuse digital intimacy with real intimacy in social media.

Sexting is commonly used in social media to feel like you’re closer with the person you are communicating with online. People who are just figuring things out may confuse digital intimacy with real intimicay which can cause embarrassment and confusion in the long run.

3. You might get lured to meet someone in real life when you’ve only chatted with them on social media.

People tend to lie about who they are on social media since it’s easier to hide who they truly are online. You may eventually get lured to meet them in real life, but from getting raped to getting brutally murdered it’s best to take precautions first.

4. Social media can give you unrealistic expectations in relationships.

People usually post photos with their significant other on social media, in which they both look content. This can heighten people’s expectations in their relationships which may cause problems for themselves and their partner. People who are single may have unrealistic goals and expectations going into a relationship. Also, young people who are single may feel the need to rush into a relationship instead of truly appreciating what they already have and their partner. They may even be in such a rush that they don’t quite look into their potential partner’s personality much which can lead to a very bad relationship.

5. Social media can introduce you to many different people. This may contribute to comparing yourself to people on social media negatively.

People all over the world often post pictures of themselves on social media and may even become famous because of them. Many of the people who become famous on social media are models. This can lead to people comparing themselves to these people and make it a goal to look like them. This often heightens people’s standards on beauty instead of truly being appreciative of any great qualities they may already have. Some people may not know that people often photoshop pictures of themselves which can give someone almost impossibly high standards. Many people even develop disorders such as anorexia to achieve their goals. 

6. You are more likely to become a victim of bullying because of cyber bullying.

Bullying is already a large problem in society and as far as I know, 44,193 Americans die by suicide every year and suicide is the 10th cause of death in the US. Many of whom decided to kill themselves because of bullying. Even cyber bullying can lead someone to become suicidal. People also often self-harm due to bullying.
