Remember the post I did not too long ago about social media anxieties? It’s been on the brain recently because I have found that it has such an impact on the way we carry on with our lives and it is affecting us at a much younger age than we even realize. I came across an interview today involving a 15-year old and her social media usage and it BLEW my mind. I found that her answer to checking her Facebook in the morning is typically how I would answer that question and we are nearly 10 years apart. However, when she describes what it means to have “likes,” I recognized what a problem this could be for her as she went on through life. A “like” in the social media world equates to validation and while we all know validation is necessary in life whether it be from a significant other, from family, from friends, or even a workplace, I have to wonder – does a “like” in social media add up to it? Will it be enough for this girl? What happens when we aren’t liked enough? Check out the interview here and please feel free to share your thoughts on it.
