The Social Media Pandemic


Today we are living through a tragedy of gigantic proportions. The phenomenon that is social media has literally taken over our lives. It’s an impressionistic society that thrives on facades rather than reality. In fact, the line between reality and make-believe has blurred so much that it’s impossible to tell the two. People are spending more time on social media than actually socializing. In the meantime, we are losing our ability to connect as friends and family, real friends; not the digital connections that rarely mean anything. These days, love is a button to click, and emotions are expressed in the form of emojis. In the meantime, we have forgotten how to live, love and connect.
