If you are like me, then you are on your phone 24/7. Checking instagram, facebook, twitter, youtube vids, snapchat… the list of social media goes on. One fun fact about me is that in RL I’m not actually on any social media. I only use social media for my SL. Is this weird?
I used to be on social media in RL but then I kind of got fed up of the false pretence that you get from it. Everyone posts pics pretending that their lives are so perfect when you never really know what happens behind closed doors. Im not saying that everyone should post when they are down in the dumps or going through stuff, but I feel social media forces us to always be on our best. At least with SL we all know that its not real. Its our lil bit of fun that we have creating a world which we love to enjoy, so what you choose to post has no limits.
I still connect with my family and friends, but now I do this old school where I actually pick up the phone to call or message them to see how they are. Now I make more of an effort to arrange meet ups so we can all have a nice old catchup. Which I think is more healthy than watching their lives through my mobile. I’d rather hear about it from them and enjoy the stories we share.
How do you use your social media? I would love to hear if you are the same as me and only use it for SL or if you use social media both in RL and SL? If so, how does that works for you? Or maybe you don’t use any at all but just fancy signing into the odd blogs now and again?
I’d love to hear your thoughts..
