Social media. It’s been around long enough now that most of us know that it’s more than just a way to keep in touch with old friends and distant family.
What you like and what you post says more about you than you think. A social media personality develops and is both a reflection of how you want others to see you and also how others see you based on your social media activity.
What you share on social media—both about your personal life and about what’s going on in the world—can speak volumes about you and send out all sorts of vibes—both positive and negative—to anyone looking.
So how to choose what to share? It’s a peek into who you are and what your life is like and a lot is left up to interpretation.
For me, it is useful and actually lots of fun. As a blogger, I have an obsession with taking photos of everything, no matter where I am. Capturing the moment is just second nature.
The shared memories popping up with photos showing our former selves, blissfully hugging family, having dinner with friends, going to a concert — constant reminders that thanks to the pandemic, the past year have been challenging for everyone.
All of life’s events don’t just exist in our head anymore, they are shared online. So be you.
