What’s Wrong With Our Generation on Social Media [Short Video]

Now On Social Media

Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter have brought noticeable changes in our life. Along with all the benefits, it has made many of us living a fake life, which is just to satisfy our inner ego. Likes and comments have become a way to judge the popularity of person, and needless to say this is not the right way to judge the satisfaction level of our life. This short video shows what is wrong with our generation on social media sites.

The only message which I have for you and for everyone else on Social-media site is; use it for being honest rather than impressive. If you enjoy this video, do check out other posts in our life-hacks category. Don’t forget to share this post on Facebook and Google plus.

    Forget being realistic. Social media is a display of your life and a general reflection of your persona, so of course you’re inclined to make it seem as perfect as possible. It encourages people to share every minute detail of their lives and every fleeting opinion they form. We feel empowered by likes and comments and despair when those interactions are lacking. We’ve become isolated behind screens, with the majority of our communication occurring online instead of face-to-face. Being around people doesn’t always curb the need to be connected to media. In most instances, it’s rude, although we might not stop to think about it; flipping through Instagram while holding a conversation is a good way to show the other party that you’re completely uninterested in what they have to say.
    Love it or hate it, almost everything has become a social media tool. It’s nearly impossible to ignore, but it doesn’t have to be all-consuming. Remember to savor the little joys in life. Share that picture of the delicious cake you made, but don’t forget to actually enjoy it.

    The dot com generation have been consumed by peer pressure and mass media. It is not like old days where respect, taboos and traditions were highly revered

    Our modern generation have been destroyed by what they see and experience. Technology has only used to aggravate the situation. We should guide and offer a sense of direction to them

    Hi Harsh Agrawal ,

    Interesting video, using social media we cannot guess the real personality of particular person or may be people are making it too complicated.

    Problem with social media satisfaction is everybody is searching happiness on social media networks, everybody looks happy on social media and wonders why my life sucks. But in the reality life sucks for everyone, instead of searching happiness online, do something offline to make yourself and your family happy.

    Rule of thumb should be: Social media is for connecting with the people, it is not for finding happiness.

    Hey Harsh,

    This video is really great. I agree with you. In today’s era people use social media to impress others or to fake it. They are just getting miss-leaded by this social media and providing a wrong message to the next generation by using it in a wrong way.
    I would like to share this.
    Thank you for this great creation… :)

    Facebook is now part of most people’s web lives, Twitter is where a lot of people are reading the breaking news and if you want to be entertained then just dial into YouTube.
    Despite it’s minimal mindshare, media profile and awareness Google+ has woven its way into our consciousness and is now the second largest social network.
    As if these social networks aren’t enough to distract us. We also now have Pinterest and Instagram to add to the online temptations.
    The social web is the modern version of Alice in Wonderland, where we are following not one but many rabbits down innumerable rabbit holes.

    I think,across all these platforms,something strange is happening,we are facing a phenomenon where we have run out of things to say,but not the desire to talk.The futility of the pings that are bewildering in their lack of content,but our lives are so open and documented,such minute details of what we do,where we are and who we are with,is now available for the rest of the world,making most of the conversation seeking information redundant.So,the more distributed our lives are,the more diminished is the need for personal communication!
