My Thoughts on: Social Media

Sunday 26 August 2018

     'Do more things that make you forget to look at your phone'

Okay, lets me preface this by saying, I am an avid social media user. I love social media. I am an Instagram addict, I have a Tumblr account, I am active on Facebook and I am partial to Twitter. 
I do a lot of work on my phone, I communicate a lot through social media and all around, I feel that platforms like Facebook and Instagram are good when you need to keep in contact with people

But, because I do use social media a lot, it means that I tend to get very...involved with it. For example, I do see things that affect me. Eg. Thin models, people with problematic opinions or just general hate speech. But I have started to this thing, where I don't get angry or bitter, I get better.  I have started to unfriend, unfollow and block people who don't brighten my feed every day. I have started to share more things (especially on Facebook) that I feel are correct. I have begun to share content about self-love, happy relationships and just general love. I have even started a facebook page dedicated to my positive blog posts and constructive quotes (follow it here ). I felt like my feed needed a little more light.

I feel like my second point should be about actually putting your phone done once in a while, stepping back from all social media and just spending time with friends and family. I love taking photos and I feel that creating memories that you can physically go back and look at is really important for anyone. But there is a time and a place for photos. This sounds really cliche but 'you have to live in the moment' sometimes. 

Although I use social media a lot, I am not someone who posts every second of their day. But being a blogger means I do have to put a large portion of my day-to-day life on social media. However, I do love just spending time with people and not having to post it everywhere. 

So take a second before you leave the house and just think - do I need to take my phone today.

  5. This is a fabulous read, Ash! I'm doing something very similar in that I'm clearing out my social media platforms. I guess it would be quicker to go through my following/ friend list but I literally just do it as I'm going along. I'm definitely gonna take on the tip of sharing more beliefs etc ! x
