Psychology of Social Media
Want to improve your self-image? Get off social media! One listener feels some of her friends use it to compensate for their insecurities. They post all the good stuff. They post about new toys and vacations. That friend wants people to like what they posted and their feelings of self-worth are wrapped up in whether someone likes their post. If someone likes their post, they feel good about themselves. As if this is a new way of “keeping up with the Jones'”.
It also has a psychological component for the friend scrolling through their feed. The reaction could be one of comparison and therefore feeling less than.
That’s why we find our identity in who we are in Christ!
