How does social media affect us?
What is social media? It is generally defined as apps that allows us to chat with other people and share all types of information, such as your current feelings, music, posts, memories etc.
At this time, almost everybody has some form of social media account. And this is exactly what influencers use to manipulate younger viewers. They promote products, brands or producers on their page, that maybe they didn't even try themselves, then manipulate others by saying how good the product is and how they recommend it to everybody. But most people don’t realize that they are doing it just for money and cooperation with the producer.
It is very difficult to judge what is real on social media and what is not. This is why we should never compare ourselves to the models on Instagram or Facebook. The photos are often edited and the person can look completely different in real life. It is very important to follow your own sense and to keep yourself above such things.
