I really Fucking HATE Social Media

I hate social media

As simple as that. I hate it. My Moma Na ( that’s what we call our mother), she always told me that hate is such a hateful word and only use it when you mean it. Whelp , again, I hate social media. I was fine with AOL, chat rooms and only being able to use the internet with a landline.We should have stopped at Myspace and Facebook only being accessible for college students.  I was obsessed with the use of the computer when I was in middle school. I use to be in chatroom lying my ass off about my age, looks, size , I was catfishing the world. It was all fun and games just a few years ago.You had to explain yourself back then and it all started off with ASL? After that it was on and poppin. It was so fun, but I wasn’t online 24/7. Shit, My family had to use the phone during the day. I didn’t even have a phone and once I got one you had to hit me up after 9pm when my minutes were free. I went outside with my girlfriends, we would walk around for hours , no matter how cold or hot it was outside. I use to print out pictures , like , all the time. I don’t even remember what I did with the pictures but I know I was always at Jack’s camera shop , printing shit out. (Yes, we had shops, just for pictures). Relationships were real. You fought and argued in person.  Now, people are posting their every break up , make-up, hook-up, mess up and communicate via a status. Oh, I know because I use to be one of them. It’s hard not to be when it’s the norm in your generation. But, I’m not here to speak about that part of social media. The part I hate is how social media has fucked up authentic friendships, relationships and people. Yes, it even got the “real” folks.

Dating Via Social Media

If one day social media was to just completely shut down, I would be so very happy. No more filters, yes.lol.And most of all no more hitting me up in my DM, inbox or snapin me. People today, have the advantage to follow you on Facebook and IG before meeting you. They get to look at all your pictures, see ya moma before meeting her and skip the hard part of meeting someone. They can easily just hit you up in your inbox with a corny line and ask you out. The hard part is that you really don’t know who your going out with . Most people take advantage of social media and make themselves the person that they always wanted to be. You have to go out on a date and find out who they really are. I mean that’s if you even get a date. I’m always getting a, “Hey, can I come over your house”or“Can we link up at the bar”? Like, whatever happened to a real date?

Social media has even made the dating pool smaller, Now guys who live in West hang with guys in South of the city. Guess what, they became besties over twitter. You can’t even be a hoe in peace these days. We, now search for a new mate, via POF, Soul Swipe , Okcupid, Match.com,eHarmony and Black Planet. It use to be weird to date someone from online, now it’s the norm. PLEASE SAVE ME FROM THIS SHIT, GET ME OUT OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA ERA.

Fake

Social  media has giving too many people opportunities to fake who they are, lie about their “Happy” home , and filter their flaws. People state that everyone is fake happy on social media , but if you write something real , like that you’re going through something. Now you’re seen as attention seeking, too emotional and telling your personal business. Damn if you do and damn if you don’t’.Has anyone written down the dos and don’ts of social media, I haven’t received the handbook yet. I can’t decipher the difference between real and fake. People who are real life corny is  now the “IT” person. Everyone is an entrepreneur ( T Shirt line) , make-up artist , fashion Guru, and my favorite one , personal trainer. I’m not hating , I’m just over it. I work a 9 to 5, I’m broke half the time, I can’t afford to travel, I don’t wear labels, I rent , my hair is real and short. Now, Filter that….

I can go on for pages but I’m sure yall not gonna read pass 2 lol! It’ a Blog, Not a dissertation on social media, the disaster in 2017 lol.

  1. I agree Esh! If I was a hunter a lot of these chicks with the damn reindeer Snapchat filter would be dinner 😂 And the crazy part is that you know how fake some people are because you once knew the “non media” part of them. People change and try to fit in for the sake of a new trend. Everyone is a victim at some point, the changing part would be what do we do to change it? I actually pick up the phone to call my loved ones..others refrain to text DM or wall posts. I love your outreach to the world! Keep bloggin’ !!!!!

  2. Sometimes we need to disconnect in order to reconnect. We live on an era where self gratification is an immediate through google, instagram, etc. we get lost in portraying ourselves to the world through our FB and instagram and Tinder and POF pictures and giving our authentic and genuine selves to people around us. I dislike that we live in society Where our generation is growing up at such a fast rate and technology definitely has a part in it; but we gotta adapt and invite this experience with caution.

  3. I agree! Social media has diluted so many things but it has also exposed the climate of society. Majority of people are impressed by the fake and easily fooled. It’s more people out here that are only “surface” deep. Nothing more, nothing less. Social media didn’t create these people, it just intensified the following. Fake people have always been fake and that hasn’t changed. It’s all a fade, and social media has done nothing but shown how we truly are in a society of sheep. Little to none have original thoughts or value substance. They rather follow the next big thing and do what is necessary to fit in. It’s literally upwards to 10 apps for communicating but somehow people still don’t know who to hold a conversation…In my opinion, social media isnt the real issue. Society is.

    1. Social media is all this generation knows. Exspecially for the ones who weren’t hear for AOL and Dialup. I don’t believe ppl were as fake as they are now. Everyone has enhanced themselves one way or another via social media.

  5. Social media is a blessing and a curse. Overall, it’s entertainment. It is a way to show your talents but it’s like everyone is doing the same thing, which won’t allow anyone to stand out. I have two pages. A personal page and a photography/videography page. I separated the two. I’ve jumped in a dm a time or two. Who doesn’t??? I don’t like to use filters and I hate a lot of the females eyebrows. Lol but social media is what you make it. Life was so much better without it. The first thing we do when we wake up is run to social media. I’m Guilty of that. But I don’t take social media serious because it’s not too many people who feel comfortable being themselves online.
