Hey Steve! Thanks for writing this.
I was bothered by how it seemed that people actually behave worse on social media than we do in real life, and decided to try and get to the bottom of it. I wrote a blogpost about it called Why are people so annoying on social media?"
In a nutshell, I believe it's because social media allows people to publish and broadcast information in a very public sense, and we haven't yet adapted to dealing with the implications of this. We become more argumentative and abrasive because we feel like performers in front of an audience- we feel more compelled to "put people in their place".
It makes us feel good about ourselves. And we're less sensitive to each other's emotional states- think about how people are ruder to each other on the road then they are in person.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this!
Oct 7 Posted 1 year ago For everything in this world, it is said that there are pros and cons of those each things. Likewise, from social media also we get many benefits as well as landed up with the loopholes. The best thing pointed down in this article is that we should be taking only the GOOD from every bad part as well. Thanks! Adma Maharjan, Community Manager at Simplify360(www.simplify360.com)
