i feel this trend of our social media generation starting to wake up from the perfection everyone sees on online/public profiles. we all know the truth that life is not as pretty as our posts. many people's advice is to minimize social media use. I think we're all starting to realize the negative effects it can have on ourselves and others, and after the frenzy that has been the last few years, it seems MAYBE our generation is coming around to learning how to balance our use of it in our lives and be more moderate about it. i think we see, whether consciously or not, that its temporarily distracting yet not fulfilling; its not enough and so we're all turning to the world outside of the one online. that's our generations coming of age struggle and story it seems.
