The Impact of Fake Social Posts
Social media is a way for people to communicate and share. But in the end, social media is not who we are.
Social Media in the modern day can be a tricky thing.
It’s a question that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. When you scroll through your Facebook feed, do you believe everything that you see? Or has it all become fake and staged to make people think or feel a certain way.
There are many reasons why social media can be considered fake; one reason being that people don’t always post their true thoughts and feelings on social media. They may instead try to portray themselves in a certain light because they want others to like them or envy them. Another reason why social media might seem fake is due to “deep fakes.”
Deep fakes are videos where someone’s face is mapped onto someone else’s body, making it look like they did something when they really didn’t. This is a new and unsettling trend that has been drawing more attention as it becomes easier to create these fake videos with the help of artificial intelligence.
Comparing yourself to your peers is the worst thing that you can do and can be the reason for your failure. It’s important to remind yourself that nobody on social media presents themselves in a way that is 100% genuine, so don’t believe everything that you see.
The main reason why people should not compare themselves to others on social media is because they don’t know what someone else’s life really looks like, or how much work went into getting the “perfect” photo. Social media is not always an accurate representation of a person’s life, and that can be dangerous because people don’t realize how much they’re comparing themselves to other people until it becomes too late.
Don’t Compare Your Success to Others
Fake social media will always have a darker side. Your own story is what matters most, and it’s the only one that you can control. Don’t compare yourself to others on social media; you don’t know what someone else’s life really looks like.
Social media is not always an accurate representation of a person’s life. This can be dangerous because people don’t realize how much they’re comparing themselves to other people until it becomes too late.
The fake videos are created with the help of artificial intelligence, and since that technology continues to advance at such speed, there will most likely come a day when these deep fakes cannot be detected by anyone but software as well.
The problem is compounded by influencers who create content specifically for social media users whose lives seem perfect; this makes viewers feel like they should have their own “perfect” story in order to fit into society or even just feel better about themselves – which has negative consequences on mental health.
But despite all the cons listed…
…There are a few PROs that come with social media.
- Social media is great for connecting people who live in different places and don’t have any other means to contact each other.
- It can be more fun than just watching TV, which might be how some of us use it the most – People sometimes post their stories online to share them with others; this could help someone else feel less alone or become inspired by what they’re doing.
- Your story is always going to differentiate you from everybody else. Use your own story and experience as an advantage.
