Typically, I actually hate social media. Typically, I actually adore it. In the present day although, I largely hate it and the predicaments it places us into. I lengthy for an easier time when it was straightforward to cease being somebody’s pal. You simply ignored their calls and texts. Carried out. It was swell. However now, on high of ignoring their calls and texts, you need to unfollow or defriend them. And for some purpose *that* makes you appear/really feel quite a bit worse. There’s something so aggressive and hostile about unfollowing or defriending somebody. Why is that? Why does it appear worse to unfollow somebody than it does to disregard them/discuss mad shiz behind their again??

As a result of social media has fully warped our mind-set. Say you could have a “pal” on Fb you haven’t spoken to in 10 years. Not a wall message, not a poke, no communication in any way. So, you resolve to un-friend them. Now, unexpectedly you’re a jerk. You’ve immediately develop into an evil troll who doesn’t should have associates to unfriend within the first place. Briefly, folks get pissed. There’s something so inherently hostile about unfriending or unfollowing somebody that individuals are likely to react extraordinarily. That’s, in the event that they even discover. There may be at all times an opportunity they gained’t discover. However they at all times discover. There may be even a Twitter app that may inform you who has unfollowed you that week. Strategy to be a narc Twitter. That’s not cool. And as soon as they know, you develop into a social media pariah. However what’s the purpose of social media for those who don’t even just like the folks you comply with or are associates with on Fb. Why have interaction in any respect if it’s simply going add pointless drama to your life? If social media is about connecting with folks you want or would possibly like, then why is it so unacceptable to unfollow or defriend folks you don’t or gained’t like?  Why do I really feel worse about unfollowing somebody then I do for not speaking to them anymore? What’s the massive deal? Does social media rule our lives? What’s all of it about????

Do you unfriend or unfollow?

So many questions……my mind hurts.
