It started with Facebook in 2011, then several Instagram accounts, several ignored twitter accounts and other social media platforms.
I Am Not a Robot
I was listening to ‘I am not a robot’ by Marina & the Diamonds the other day, and it got me thinking about the metaphorical masks that we wear to hide our emotional scars, left by circumstance and experience. Our feelings and emotions have been largely ignored, and we are too afraid to bring them to light, especially since there has been an emphasis on wearing these ‘masks’ during the last two decades. Thanks to social media and how western society currently operates, we now live in a somewhat narcissistic society. But it is not our fault that we possess these traits of narcissism. The subtle conditioning from social media platforms and our reliance on the rise in technology has slowly altered people’s way of thinking and the way we behave. The focus has moved from ‘us’ to the individual. The conditioning of comparison, competition, fear, and a desire to be adored and liked has been ingrained into our brains. From a Darwinian perspective, our primitive brain would understand that this is a possible survival tactic, so conforming to this new set of behavioral rules will establish one’s survival and evolution.

How We Can Still Save Our World
I disabled notifications and blocked social media apps until 8 pm. Yet, I still cannot stop looking at my phone, waiting for the notification light to blink at me.
3 Key Ways Social Media Distorts Our Perception of Beauty
The definition of beauty is one of the most divisive, diverse, and debated topics in the world’s history. There is an argument as old as time, of whether or not “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Some believe that beauty is completely subjective, and thus merely exists in the minds of those who contemplate it. Others argue that if beauty is subjective, then the word beauty has no meaning and that nothing is beautiful as a result.
How to Deal with Social Media Criticism
Listen up, guys! The internet is a source for endless entertainment and information for sure. It’s a place for people to connect from all over the world on social media platforms which anyone would agree is awesome. After all, these means of communication offer a window into the lives of celebrities, politicians, minority groups and the general population, and when used correctly they can strengthen the bonds between humans. However, just like nobody is perfect, neither is the social media which has evolved into a platform where many people are compelled to start discourse. A quick scroll through Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, or Reddit will quickly reveal that social media has become a breeding ground for toxic behaviors and harsh criticisms.
Unfollowing For Your Mental Health
"Unfollow anyone on social meida and in real life who does not make you feel empowered, informed or inspired."-Unknown The question on whether you should unfollow someone you use to know on social media can feel overwhelming especially if it is someone you know such as a friend, family or your favorite celebrity.

Social media and body image
A lot of people nowadays are suffering from eating disorders, sleep issues, depression and anxiety. More than 50% of those problems are related to social media and cyber-bullying. We live in a world where the amount of likes and comments under our photos indicates how worthy we are.
Like many others, especially in my age group, I’m a little bit obsessed with social media. Everyday I hop onto Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to scroll through my feeds of friends, family, and news to stay up to date and interact with the world around me. It’s perfectly normal for their to be negativity on my feed, which I am sure is the same for most people. Twitter, more so than other social media platforms, has a reputation for being extremely toxic, especially given the current circumstances. All across the app people are venting and arguing about every topic from politics to their personal lives and strangers are able to interact with these outpourings. This is what makes Twitter so toxic. Platforms like Facebook and Instagram curate feeds centred on what the user searches for on their platform and who they follow. Twitter does the same to a certain extent, but there is also a lot more interaction beyond these parameters.
