Impact of Social Media on our lives
Life is meant to enjoy at its fullest. What does enjoyment means to us.It means to play all day and night for a child. To roam about, travel , eat , sleep, drink are the few ways to enjoy the life. There are some new modern ways to enjoy life and find happiness in life. That includes watching favourite serials and movies on Netflix,Playing new interesting games online,posting pictures on Facebook,Twitter , creating stories on Instagram and Snapchat. This is not limited to kids and teenager but middle age also and even older people are also fond of this and had fallen in this Social Media Love.
Impact of Social Media Love on our lives
There is no harm falling in any kind of love till it does not affect your real life , relationship and physical and mental health. I have seen couples and families going for a dinner and instead enjoying their meals they are busy on their mobile phones, clicking pics and updating their status – ” Dinner with my sweet family or my love” .
The food is on their table but they are making a video on Insta or Snapchat , finally waiting for Likes or Views. Sometimes they even wait to cross their last post views or comment or likes. In this process they forget the to enjoy the life in real means. These likes , tweets, comments, views, status, stories have become our lifelines.
Social Media Obsession
Internet is both a boon and a curse for our lives. Rather it is true in every case. Everything is boon when used in limits e.g. sugar and salt both are important for our metabolism , when consumed in limits,over the limit leads to diabetes and high blood pressure .One should enjoy everything in limit.
People who remain active on these medias are sometimes get obsessed with it. They check their phones after every few minutes to check the latest updates on various Social Media Platforms. This is called Social Media Obsession. Their mind can’t think more than these numbers. Sometimes they get so obsessed with these stats that they forget what is happening around them. This can be hazardous for their physical and mental health and sometimes they can lose their precious lives too.
I remember the incident happened where few friends were going for a drive. They made live Snapchat video. After a few minutes of posting this video online , their car met with an accident and they lost their lives.
