Went for a trip, let me post some pictures. Bought something new, let me show it to the whole world. Someone died, let me mourn with a post. We all often do that, don’t we?
People usually hide their true identity behind a veil. Nobody on social media wants to show their true-self to anyone. People don’t post ‘what is true’, but, what they ‘want’ the audience to know is true. They are curious about what is going on in the world even if they are least bothered about the situation or condition. They will unnecessarily try to fit themselves in the picture and are the ones who show sympathy without actually having any interest in it. It is a mere show-off so that they are not criticized by their colleagues and the public.
In recent news about the suicide of Indian actor- Sushant Singh Rajput, one of his friends made a statement against (the use of) social media.
Her views clearly state how people manipulate things to fit their purpose. If one does not mourn on social media, it does not mean that he/she isn’t grieving. Also, posting sad comments does not necessarily mean that one is grief-stricken.
Emotions are a ‘trump card’ in the hands of people who are active on social media with a hawk’s eye, looking for an opportunity to attack upon. Therefore, it has become quite hard to distinguish between what is fake and what is real? Let’s just pause for a moment and think, are we even real?
