Everyone in the world uses about 50% of their time surfing in Facebook and it’s becoming an invisible epidemic. Living a life of “luxury and grandeur” is one thing that most Facebook users find themselves addicted to. Then they ask themselves real life is not like Facebook.
Throwing aside the idea that your profile picture is eternally beautiful and that you have the best photos online, you could get your answer from the previous phrase. People serve you only the best headlines from their lives. And so do you.
At one point before the Internet, the superficial gloss covering almost every asset and part of a celebrity’s life is now available to everyone using social media.
And why your social media profile is a better life than your real life is because little efforts go a long way. Take a great photo of yourself and you’re surrounded with people who find you lovely or attractive. Upload an image about your favourite food or place and you find people with similar interests talking to you about it.
In philosophy, you are living a life of a lie where you have control of all causalities. It becomes the ‘perfect’ life, but not too perfect because of the lack of physicality and realness to its community.
