The mass culture has changed into an enormous way possible by social media. It has changed almost everything.
Social media is the main source which has changed the way we communicate with other people. It has turned an entire generation into narcissists. People don’t care about world issues. Most of us spend our free time taking selfies and editing them in a way that makes us more beautiful in order to post on social media accounts.
Our lives have taken over by social media and we choose things to post in order to make our lives seem a little less meaningless and more fulfilled. We are self-centered in all ways possible. Most of the teenagers spend their time in their rooms, finding joy simply watching television and playing on their smartphones. Even though some people claim that we are more connected thanks to social media, the truth is that we are more separated, more broken in many ways.
We only see masses of individuals competing with one another for followers, shares, likes, retweets, and things along those in social media platforms. Even though there are some small level activities and tiny percentages of people who do not have hidden intentions with social media, the bad outweigh the good on a large scale.
On our social media accounts, we make ourselves out to be who we want to be rather than whom we are. Self-obsession has caused because of extreme focus on us. We do this to promote ourselves as someone we are not for popularity we will never truly have. When you share things you get noticed and it makes you valid in a world taken over by social media.
You may get excited when you notice someone share or retweet a post you made. Our brains often release a small rush of dopamine that could be comparable to a tiny hit of cocaine when something like this happens. People are begging for likes and follows such as with the hashtags “#likeforlike” or “#follow4follow.” Social media can be a great thing but it’s not the way we are currently using it.
In any way, we yearn for validation and need to affirm our egos. I could spout off at least ten instances of self-obsession within the first sixty seconds of looking through my Facebook feed. The government knows exactly what they are doing.
They don’t care enough about anything and don’t take any action against those causing issues and also they are creating a world of self-obsessed narcissists. We are not pawns. Just see the video below!
