I think this topic is among one of the most important things in our world. The different social media apps and websites have a giant influence on us, and a lot of people are addicted to it.
Some people spend several hours every day scrolling through social media. They cannot survive a day without checking Facebook, Instagram
Snapchat etc. because they are in a constant need to stay updated in what happens between their friends. But why is social media such a big thing in our daily routines? And is social media used as a way of self-promotion for teenagers?
In todays feed on Instagram, there is a lot of meme pages with millions of followers where people gather around a page and the page is trying to hit people with emotions to reach out to as many people as possible.
On valentine’s day, they show pictures of a lonely girl sitting alone at a restaurant with the caption “This is going to be me tonight”.
Their goal is to reach out to all the girls who are sad about they don’t have a valentine’s day and that there are a lot of girls who are having the same feeling as them. It’s like a community where people catch the same emotions.
Not every meme is positive. There are meme pages who would show some old shoes which a majority of people would see as outdated or “old-school”.
