What do you do when you like your friend in person but not so much on social media? Do you roll your eyes at the number of selfies or food pics your friend posts? Disliking your friend’s content but not your actual friend is not an uncommon phenomenon. Certainly, you can unfriend them but they will probably notice and become offended. While your feelings of annoyance are valid, it’s best to just scroll by the content that bothers you and continue to value the actual friendship itself.
- Social media drives a wedge between engaging and positive relationships of all kinds
- It is important to understand that social media fills a perception void many may have in their lives
- Understanding the boundaries between unhealthy and healthy posting are vital to real-world relationships
“Unfortunately, sometimes our friends’ online selves aren’t nearly as lovable as they are in person.”
