  • Social media is like a gun. Unless a human picks it up and uses it, it can do nothing.

    People use social media as a crutch and avoid developing interpersonal skills. People who are 18-30 today complain about not feeling connected in their relationships but they go out with friends and spend the time texting with people who aren't present. FB, texting, IG, etc. have not helped people bu the culprits are the people who have misused them.

  • I think OlderAndWiser has it right. No one should be asking someone out via social media if they can do it in person, for example.

  • It's a distraction. Social media interferes with every aspect of life, just like drugs, or any other addictive behavior. In moderation, it's a healthy outlet for the overly introverted, but it can be abused like anything else and be destructive towards relationships, employment, responsibilities etc. etc.

  • Weve made social media the arbiter of our interactions and relations with others. Its like we have added an unnecessary benchmark to our interactions. Because what we think of ourselves has become unimportant but what the Facebook universe thinks of us is all important apparently.

  • Social media is gross because of how people use it, not because of its very existence. People often use it to sabotage others, and even themselves, but that's not the fault of the apps, the designers, or the promoters. Too few people accept responsibility for their own choices. "Social media" is just another in a long line of scapegoats for overgrown children.

  • It certainly changes things, because news can travel really fast. On another board, A Virgin was fucked and then he took a snap at the end and sent it to some friends. She became a slut at her school in about 2 seconds.

  • If social media is life, then most definitely. Plus, social media can be harmful to non romantic relationship. I've heard of dumb people losing friend's over someone not looking their post.

  • If you allow anything to interefere with your relationship, you're not ready for a relationship. Relationships are for adults.

  • I rail against social media constantly on here. It's not real folks, nothing about it means a thing compared to face to face interaction. The problem is too many people believe it matters.

  • For many it makes it easy to find people who were bad influences earlier in life. That is what happened to my late wife. She went from a great mother to a strung out junkie in a matter of a year.

  • In my experience, it only does if both or one of the partner's is super insecure. Otherwise, it's a non-issue. My social media has caused a number of ZERO issues or arguments in my relationship, and vice versa.

  • I think it can cause issues but ultimately it depends on the individual couple and if they let it interfere with their relationship. It all just comes down to how you use it. I like social media for keeping in touch with my friends and family but that's about it. It's important to have a life outside of social media too where you can live in the present and interact positively with your loved ones face-to-face.

  • Only if you let it. Social media is not some sort of entity that has control over your life. If social media affects you, it's because you let it. If social media ruins your life, it's because you let it.

  • It depends. I’ve dated a guy who spent all of his time on Instagram and didn’t talk to me that much. I’ve also been with a guy who communicates with me through Facebook (due to long distance), and has treated me with more interest and respect than any guy I’ve met before him.

  • I think that social media is so misused that it can even fuck up a government, a marriage and a relationship! It results in people loosing their jobs, falsely shames people, has caused many young suisides and it would give me joy to see facebook founder taken out and stoned to death.

  • Absolutely.
    This also taking into account most social media will show you things to get a reaction out of you. Did you just have a tense conversation with someone? Well here's something to make you even angrier about thga topic. And it's all done on purpose to have you keep using it.

  • Social media can only effects you negativity if you let it everything in life for moderation. Social media has never interfered with my relationships or friendships. I still go out in public to live my life.

  • It will if you let it. For it to not interfere requires two things, 1) confidence in oneself and the relationship and
    2) not having a reliance on social media to establish your net worth as a person.
