I have no real life friends so social media is all I have left.
I'm guilty of posting pics and stories about my kids often but not all the time. The rest of my profile is about anime, comics, football and tv shows I'm watching. I'm also big on trying new recipes.
I think overall social media has had a negative effect on society when it comes to spend all day with faces buried in phones, instead of experiencing life. But then there's people like myself who are already suffering from social anxiety and hate leaving the house. Now I definitely don't have to force myself out to get social interaction. I can do it from the palm of my hand without feeling self conscious about my looks.
