daannnnieelI can't stand people who care more about their social media appearances than their actual life outside of the internet. I hate it when I meet someone who seems cool and the first thing out of their mouth after being introduced is, "oh do you follow me on instagram?"
why the fuck would I follow you on instagram, I don't even know you..? I almost got in a fight over that once with a complete stranger at the club because I told him I wasn't going to follow them. A physical fist fight. What the fuck.
theabortionatorI live my life one social media post at a time. Nothing else matters. Not the mods, not my homework, not my parents and all their bullshit. For those 10 sentences or less I'm free.
OJulierI love how your signature fits your statement
SkiaNZI think there is definitely good stuff about social media, but I think some people are just way too into it. I still have social media but I try not to spend too much time on it and I especially try not to go on my phone when I'm with other people.
freestyler540Sounds more like an excuse. These platforms are designed to make you addicted. When you post a picture, or comment on another, receiving feedback is a pure ego rush of pleasure. Its so powerful, that you will anxiously wait for a response.
Example: My buddy loves to post on instagram, every day he reminds me that 20 new people "liked" his picture. The reality is people dont exactly care about the picture...they look at the picture for less than a second and click a button. 5 minutes after, they forgot.
If your career revolves around social media, that is a very reasonable use for it. But in all reality, its nothing but a distraction.
I dont have any social media accounts...unless newschoolers.com is considered one. NS is really good at teaming up with perfect strangers.
.lenconBut then there's this trendy shit like saying
"I'm gonna be so extra"
I fucking hate when people say that.
treebearddude, you and your friends on here use stupid trendy shit like "fam" more than anyone on newschoolers.
