Let’s come to terms with the truth. Social media is no longer just the future anymore. It’s already here. Yes, there will be a few outliers out there; people who will protest and say that they will not want to have anything to do with Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
But that doesn’t mean that social media won’t play a role in their lives. Social media is just far too prominent in everyday life and it really does affect the way that we love nowadays.
There is just no denying the profoundness and significance of the effect that social media can have on our species; on our society. It has proven to be both a force for good and an instrument of evil.
And yes, social media is something that can be used as an effective tool for people to communicate and stay in touch. It’s a great way for you to be able to interact with someone that you don’t have access to on a daily basis.
It’s also a tool for you to be able to acquire knowledge and information about subject matters or topics that you might not necessarily be familiar with. And in that sense, social media can be seen as a very useful tool.
However, it also has its bad sides. Social media can be so incredibly divisive for a lot of people who disagree on politics, religion, and ethics. It can also be a platform for bullying and hatred between toxic people who are just looking to cause chaos in the world. Social media can also be particularly dangerous for people who have mental health problems.
Yes, you want to be eager to share all of the greatest aspects of your life on social media. You want to be posting all of your pretty Instagram pictures. You want to be tweeting about all of your random thoughts.
You want to be sharing all of your romantic videos. For the most part, that’s fine. However, you still have to be careful. You still have to be mindful.
According to the advice of relationship experts, there are still some things that you shouldn’t be sharing on social media if you want to hold on to your relationship. Here are a few things that you need to avoid posting about on the internet:
1. Your sex life.
Your sex life is your own business. It’s not something that you should be broadcasting to the world around you. You always have to make sure that you are keeping this very intimate aspect of your relationship private. You never want to be broadcasting your sex life for the whole world to pay witness to.
2. Your partner’s private information.
They are called “private information” for a reason. These are details about a person’s life that shouldn’t be broadcasted for the public. You shouldn’t be posting stuff about your partners such as mental or physical health issues, financial problems and dealings, fears, anxieties, stresses, and other such things.
3. The fights that you have in your relationship.
You are going to have your fair share of fights in your relationship every once in a while. And that’s okay. That’s not something that you should be worrying about.
However, you should be worried if you start posting about your fights online. That’s not going to help diffuse the tension and pressure that’s in your relationship as a result of your arguments.
4. Private and intimate photos.
Never post a photo of your partner without first gaining their consent. This is especially true for photos that might prove to be incriminating in a certain way. You don’t want to be posting a nude photo of your partner knowing that they sent it to you for your eyes only.
5. Jokes about your partner.
It’s okay to joke around with your partner. In fact, it’s encouraged to always incorporate humor into your relationship. But that doesn’t mean that you have free reign to be making jokes at your partner’s expense.
This is especially damaging when it’s done in such a public forum. You don’t want to be belittling and demeaning your partner with thousands of people paying witness to it.
6. Passive-aggressive commentary.
Sometimes, you will go through certain struggles and frustrations in your relationship that will really get on your nerves. That’s normal. What isn’t normal is when you go to social media and resort to passive aggressive commentary about it.
That isn’t going to help alleviate the tension in your relationship at all.
7. Attention-seeking posts and updates.
No one likes an attention-seeker. So just quit it. Social media doesn’t exist for your validation.
8. Negative comments about your partner or their exes.
And lastly, try to stay away from posting negative comments about your partner or their exes. You might have problems with certain people but social media isn’t a platform for you to vent those problems out. You have to be smarter than that.
