I recently been thinking about some people’s social media do not represent their life. I know it do not have to, but I think pretending to be someone else all the day is exhausting, the thing I recently noticed and it took me by surprise, I needed some days to reflect or think about it before I write about in this website.
I notice some people may behave in a certain way in the real life but they act the opposite on social media, on their personal accounts. I do understand that some people like to create or draw a certain personality, in front of others in real life and on social media to get certain amount and kind of respect but I think it is over used. For example there are some people are understanding in conversations and accept to listen to the other and opposite opinion on social media places but when they are confronted in real life, they behave in the opposite way. I think that behavior is really ridiculous.
Here are some questions for you to help you discover if your personal account reflect your personality or not:
- Are you showing the truth to others ?
Dose your social media accounts show the real you, the words and photos, pictures and videos you post ?
Are they just there to show others a “fake”, improved version of yourself?
Do you behave in social media as you would behave in real life ?
I do see the reasons when business accounts behave in that way and I think they have too. What I am writing about here is not business accounts. I meant the personal accounts. I think since the account is for personal use, it at least should show the TRUE and positive sides of a person’s life if the owner of the account wants to, but it should be true. Such as if a person always say in videos and writes about forgiving others he, she should apply that idea in the real life, if a person did not do the thing or ideas that it is in the accounts, it most likely means that person is not real to himself and his followers!
Sometimes a person may treat each social media platform slightly different because there are some accounts are privet and others are not, that dose not always mean a person is lying to others but it is similar when a person goes out with some group of friends and then goes out with different people, most likely the topics they talked about are ( in both groups) are different.
Here is my last question:
- Dose your personal social media accounts really represent yourself to others, your thoughts and things you like?
