When reading this article http://socialmediatoday.com/brennangirdler/2355386/4-cruel-reasons-we-suffer-social-media
I found it interesting on how it became apparent as to what social media had become; and led us as those users to believe. Our attentions have shifted from what we may have once originally seen social media to be, and in fact takes into consideration the raw truths of what is being displayed on a day to day basis.
Points out four factors that are contributed to our every-day social media experience that may little by little ruin our experience.
1 – Businesses are invasive in that how our social media experience often revolves around them.
2 – Social Media has turned from connecting from one another, to attention grabbing statuses, news, and pictures (referring to instagram; etc.)
3 – The amount businesses are willing to pay in order to get facts on each and every individual user to benefit their own purpose from a business perspective.
4 – Addiction for interaction, likes, shares
I can’t disagree with anything in regards to what social media has turned to, and believe it can only increase (businesses interaction) as time continues on; businesses are taking over in how they are investing from different platforms, and sites. From Twitter, Facebook, to Vine, Instagram; etc.
What is your opinion on these factors?
