Are we becoming digital narcissists with social media? How do you manage your online identity?
What I believe is that we are what we choose to be on social media. What I mean by this is that if we choose to be what is dubbed a”Social Media whore” in the way of needing to post a status of something via Facebook or posting a tweet via Twitter every hour or need or five-ten minutes. The people I hate especially is those people who post images on social media sites and say “How many likes can I get for this image?” or “Like if you think this image is beatuiful, comment if you want your grandma to die” I believe that those sort of people should not be allowed to be able to use facebook anymore and have those sort of posts removed and taken of Facebook. Then there are other social media users where they are on their soley to communicate with their mates from clsoe by or who are overseas and to communicate in the way as if they would if they were talking to their mates face to face at a pub or cafe or what ever location they were meeting up in.
The way I manage my social media pages is that I soley only use to interacte with my mates as if I would face to face in real life and that I barely put any information that is really personal to me online, even if they do ask for it I just directly do not accept it and refuse straight away. The only time I actually do stuff on social media websites is play a couple of the games that are on Facebook only and just make myself barely known online and then only people that actually see it is those people who are my close mates and people that I have accepted friend requests from.
