The online killer

Social media is a ludicrous judgment factory. For every positive notion released, several negative or consequential actions are made. Social media takes away one's time, diminishes their attention span and is destructive to humanity. This is all in means of mindless scrolling and posting, not for use with judicial or supportive motives in social awareness issues.


Apps such as Instagram, Tik-Tok, Facebook and Snapchat have morphed into an attempt for humans to paint their grass greener. If someone doesn't post about a topic, others think that person does not care. If a picture or video wasn't posted, the specified event didn't happen. If someone states their opinion, whether good or bad, they are judged. There is a perpetuated fear of missing out on a topic, ideal, movement or trend.
