This article is a perfect example of what our generation focuses on, Social Media. The article states that ages 12 to 25 use the social media app Vine, but I disagree and believe that kids even younger than 12 are using these social media apps every day. Our generation must be extremely self-conscious and lack self-esteem because majority of us only care about the attention we receive from the amount of likes and comments we can get on the things we post about. For example, someone who posts a picture of themselves on Instagram, do you really think anyone cares about the makeup you’re wearing today? That doesn’t matter though, what matters is how you caption the picture and edit it to attract the most amount of ‘likers’ as possible. Kids, teenagers, and young adults don’t go outside anymore or play sports, enjoy any kind of physical activity or work towards being good at anything physical. We only do the things or pretend to do the things that we can post about and acquire the most amount attention from. Socials Media tells us how to dress, what we should look like, how we should talk, and the things we should do. Very few people do things for themselves any more, and we don’t do things to make us feel good about ourselves. We are constantly worried about what people will think of us if we aren’t doing what Social Media tells us to do.
