If we think about it, social media is just another community alternative to what we see outside in real life. There are a few different people we see in a regular community just as there are in a digital world. There’s also a few ethics we follow and there’s a number of behaviors many frowned upon (like the annoying inspirational quotes and condescending posts).
There’s such a thing as social norm in social media that eventually changes and shifts itself. Inspirational quotes before were interesting, motivational and heartwarming. Now they’re just senseless, misguided and downright obnoxious. What is acceptable now may not be quite welcoming in the future, and that can cost or grant us followers depending on how we adapt.
