“con (fes/fu) sion”

I love media, or do I? I believe I do. Why I love media? Honestly, I love media because I love to laugh. Every day there are all kinds of content put up on social media. Hilarious videos, new music, comments and most important for me, MEMES. It feels ignorant in a way, to love media just because it’s funny but I must confess, because the source of most of my laughter is social media.

Even though social media is a huge part of the source of my laughter, I am confused all of a sudden. Because now, I realise that I hate media. Social media separates us from our souls and real life. I want the source of my laughter to be real people or real events. I want people to literally see my laughter and give them the satisfaction of making someone laugh. We are replacing our real lives with social in an extent where I am scared that the future generations are going to live only in social media.

I don’t know, there are a lot of variations of media that I can not decide if I love it or hate it. I guess I just feel neutral.
