How I feel about Media

In the recent time we experienced a social media breakdown. Instagram, Facebook and Whatsapp shutdown and the world froze. This ridiculous situation led to worldwide panic. People didn’t realize how important is for us to have a constant connection to social media and how much our life depends on it

Naked – this is how I feel without having a connection to the media. I feel safe knowing that I can connect with people all over the world any time I want, especially with my parents in case of an emergency. 

Although all of the informations, photos and videos I scroll on during the day usually seems the same and don’t make any development or improvement in my life. 

It doesn’t really matter if I love or hate it. Media is my life itself, sometimes it gives me joy and inspiration, as well as it can make me feel insecure and lonely.
