Is Social Media Lying to Us?

About once a month, you’ll probably see a blog post from me that leads to the Pursue website. This site has articles of encouragement and spiritual growth. I hope you get the chance to read my future Pursue posts! 🙂  

Selfies at the beach. Photos with friends. Videos of hysterical laughter.

What do all of these things have in common?

 They are all part of the social media pit that has swallowed our entire society.

We have been consumed by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, and a myriad of other social media sites and apps. And we have been consumed by the lies that they tell us.

Social media is a one-dimensional form of communication. It doesn’t reveal our dark thoughts, our lonely hearts, or our raw emotions. I can insert a smiley face when my heart is breaking. I can say “LOL” when I feel like screaming. I can post pictures of a fun vacation without mentioning that it ended in sunburn and tears.

We have lost our honesty and authenticity because many of the things we post on social media are based on a lie. They only reveal a tiny part of who we are.

In fact, social media mainly reveals who we wish we were.
