I was thinking to myself the other day…. About all the familiar strangers we are friends with… Now you are probably wondering if there was too much sugar in my cereal this morning… But hold up… I’m not crazy…
Ok, well maybe just a little bit.
If you still didn’t get what i’m going on about, then here it is… I’m talking about the many many social media friends we all have…
Its just plain creepy that we know a tad too much about them! (Pun intended , of course).
‘Stories’ have become the latest craze where we are practically showing clips of our lives to all our dear familiar strangers…oh i’m sorry, ‘friends’.
I’m serious here… I know the littlest details of everyone’s lives… Including people I don’t even talk to anymore! And the worst part is.. when I actually meet these people in real life… I find myself running out of things to actually talk about with them…
And the sad part is, most of the time… we do things just to put them on our social media. We are not having fun or making memories, we are simply creating a post. All in the hopes of getting more likes than the person next to us or maybe to catch a special someone’s attention.
We all need a social media detox before everybody we know ends up becoming a familiar stranger! Let’s vow to spend more time enjoying ourselves and do things that make us forget our phones!
