Social media has become an important part of our life. At the point when your friends didn’t answer to your text, you can greet them on Facebook. When you need to listen to music or see a music video from your most loved artist – go to YouTube. When you wake up and open your eyes, you don’t need to stroll outside to get the newspaper, simply take your smartphone and look over your Twitter to find the news. Here are five ways that social media can destroy you.
1. Getting tagged in bad photos from a night out
You go out, you have a good time. You wake up the next morning and Facebook is covered with pictures of you looking like Shrek’s ugly brother.
2. Changing your relationship status on Facebook
It’s that awkward moment that just keeps going. You go to ‘in a relationship’ from ‘single’ and your phone is hopping with texts and likes more than a birthday post and more interest than a house party.
3. Getting trolled
Something that is happening more and more these days and for anyone who has experienced it, I’m sure it’s frightening.
4. A Snapchat screenshot
Snapchat is where people send the silliest of things because it only lasts for a few seconds, but when those few seconds become immortalised, that impulsive shot of your bum may start to seem like a bad idea.
5. Sending a personal message in a group WhatsApp
Whether it’s to your mam, your girlfriend or that young one you’ve been working on, always make sure you’re not in a WhatsApp group first. It’s the type of thing that leads to nicknames and longstanding jokes that go on for eternity.
