Here’s a powerful message exposing the truth about social media. And in a world where screen time is skyrocketing year after year, everyone needs to hear about this threat.
It’s all too easy to get caught up in electronic devices and social media in this day and age. But too often, we stop noticing the world around us because our focus is on the screens in front of us. For instance, have you ever been dining out at a restaurant and looked around to see couples, groups of friends, or even families all on their phones? It's all too common of a sight nowadays.
The term “social media” sounds like something that would make us more social. But instead, it seems to be having the opposite effect. Our screens are robbing us from the real-world relationships right in front of us!
This video offers a pretty eye-opening look at social media. It explores the influence it is having on our lives, as well as the lives of the younger generation.
For example, folks freely share information online. They post all kinds of personal things about themselves — things they wouldn’t ordinarily make public. Yet, when it comes to face-to-face interaction, this kind of openness and vulnerability is completely lacking.
Ironically, this seems to go against everything social media set out to do in the first place. With more and more smartphones and children getting them at even younger ages, this terrifying trend will only continue to rise.
This video holds such a powerful message. And it will really get you thinking about putting the phone down so you can take in the simple things of life God gave us to enjoy. Next time we are online, let’s all remember this speech and not forget life is happening all around us.
Be sure to share this story, especially with the younger generations, to make sure the truth about social media keeping spreading!
