Annie Hawthorne's insight:

The fear of missing out-- a feeling that everyone experiences at some point. Social media has allowed for this fear to escalate. Now that we have the ability to know what our family, friends, and random people are doing we find ourselves bored with the present and what we are actually doing. These days there's no need to talk to people about their lives because we've already seen and read all we need to know.

How Social Media Overload Can Lead to Break-Ups. Apr 16, 2014 09:00 AM ET // by Emily Sohn. View Related Gallery ». Too much time on social media can lead to relationship troubles.
Annie Hawthorne's insight:

Social media is the apparent reason for many breakups. People say jealousy is the root of their relationships ending. With Facebook and other social media sites, couples see other couples' "romance". 

"A 2011 survey found that Facebook was cited in as many as a third of divorce filings, often mentioning inappropriate messages to other friends or mean posts and comments." --example of jealousy and mistrust.

Annie Hawthorne's insight:

According to this study, humans are only capable of relating and being in a close relationship with 150 people at a time, which seems like a lot. However, considering the amount of Facebook friends and twitter and instagram followers, people are relying on social media to find relationships. The term loneliness has evolved into a new meaning. A lonely person doesn't just not have a physical relationship with someone, but also a lonely person does't have any relationships in the social media world.

I agree with this. From someone who is constantly snap chatting, I see my face up close way more than I would like, and I see other people's faces up close more than I would like. Naturally, I compare my features, which leads to self-consciousness, and a lower self esteem. Selfies, however, most of the time are just for fun, and cause little or no harm.

Annie Hawthorne's comment, April 23, 7:11 PM
This article claims that selfies can lead to narcissism, and in extreme cases, obsession and suicide. One man spent hours everyday trying to take the perfect selfie, but he was unhappy with his appearance, so he ended up losing a drastic amount of weight, and later attempted suicide. In my opinion, this case is very extreme. Almost everyone I know uses snapchat, so they take numerous selfies everyday. But these selfies aren't leading to mental illness or narcissism. Most of the time these selfies are just for humour, however I can see how they could lead to obsession over physical appearance because you are seeing yourself so often.

Could Your FOMO Kill You?
Huffington Post
That's what an in-depth study done on FOMO concluded after studying the link between the fear of missing out and our use of social media.
Annie Hawthorne's insight:

Defines FOMO- this fear of missing out- and how it is eating away at many social network users. 

 

In my opinion, we become these voyeurs who are mainly intrigued by what isn't in our world (snapchat stories, facebook albums, instagrams) and we become obsessed with something ELSE, something that isn't what we are doing, and, in the words of the article, begin to think WE are not spending OUR time wisely (as if to insinuate others are in fact spending their time in a better way)

 

This idea of FOMO shortening a life span- those who are insecure via social networking are poisoned, in a sense, by social media - ie they feed off of what hurts them- and they are seen with their phones at all times including while driving and get in car crashes... interesting twist.

How Social Media Can Induce Feelings of ‘Missing Out’

How Social Media Can Induce Feelings of ‘Missing Out’ | Voyeurs: An Effect of Social Media | Scoop.it
When constant updates on social media show your friends having fun without you, it’s easy to develop a case of FOMO, or “fear of missing out.”

Sydney Cardozo's curator insight, December 4, 2013 7:03 PM

This is really really interesting to me because I feel like almost every highschooler, and young adults feel this. Fear of missing out on some cool experience, missing that party, or not going to that school dance. It makes people feel inadequate and stressed when they see how great a time everyone else is having in pictures on Facebook while you're at home on the couch. Social Media not only makes us feel like we are missing out, I think also because of this fear of missing out on things it causes people to be overly active in the internet world. Not sure if this is making sense but it almost causes a secret competition between friends and people. Whoever gets the most likes, or did the coolest thing is the one who feels that sense of affirmation whereas the other person feels depressed and unloved. Funny how things on a screen can do this to us.

Annie Hawthorne's comment, April 27, 7:38 PM
I agree with sydney 100%. Especially with the new technology of snap stories, teenagers are feeling even more left out. Everyone is afraid of exclusion, and obsessed with flaunting their life. People constantly updating the world with their whereabouts may be fun for them, but it indirectly hurts others.

Sydney Cardozo's curator insight, December 4, 2013 7:11 PM

This is one of my favorite articles I have read. It discusses the emotional tole social media can have on real life friendship. Likes, favorites, and friend requests on these social media websites make people feel loved, and that is why they keep coming back. It becomes an addicition. However, for those that don't receive any likes or far less than most of their friends they feel inadequate. It makes people question realtionships that had been just fine before a certain person not liking a profile picture. Social media helps fuel the feelings of isolation self doubt more than anything to me. It is interesting, and so inspiring hearing about the stories of syrians escaping riots that are half a world away but is it worth all the other anxiety?

In this project, we began to assume the negativity of social media but this discussion with the creators portrays Twitter in a beautiful light- a center of connection. 

 

"What is Freedom of Speech? Twitter is." 

 

Uses- Obama live tweeting (political), tweets from space (in a way, environmental and educational), Police Departments communicate during cases of missing children, etc

The normalization of social media may have dulled our ability to correctly measure our usage habits.
Annie Hawthorne's insight:

Social media causes people to be less focused on their lives-namely the workplace in this article

 

This article is an extreme case, but shows that workers are not putting 100% of their attention on their jobs

The term "distracted doctoring" has been used to describe doctors using social media during procedures and for non-medical purposes

Social media is said have an addicting quality. If so, doesn't social media and drugs and alcohol have a relation? Doctors using phones during procedures is just as bad as doctors drinking before procedures.

Annie Hawthorne's comment, April 23, 7:23 PM
This article cites a study that showed that people who scored higher on a test that studies narcissism had more Facebook friends and updated their face books more frequently. In other words, they love updating others on their "perfect" lives. Their use of social media is described as "pro-social," meaning it is more to paint a perfect picture of his/her life than it is to connect with friends and family. I see truth in this article because it seems that people who post most frequently on social media are more confident with themselves.

Narcissism- self love, "unhealthy admiration of your intellect"

 

generation more narcissitic -

 2/3 college students more narcissistic than thirty years ago

 

What is it doing to us?

NPD- seriously think one is better than people, aggressive, serious problem

Narcissism Epidemic- corrosive to society

social media partly to blame

30% of photos taken are selfies

growing ability to indulge on narcissistic traits

 

Could it possibly be better?

better and more self aware? 

know we're being watched? more likely to behave honestly

looking at your reflexion is proven to reduce incidents of cheating on tests

It is not always about vanity

Sydney Cardozo's curator insight, December 4, 2013 7:18 PM

Is it ethical for social media sites to target the youth of our nation? Is it fair for a reputation to be ruined just because of one tweet, or one post? Privacy almost no longer exists. Your parents always told you whatever you post online is permanent, but those warnings are never understood until it is too late. Another senior seminar group is discussing cyberbullying and adults/parents involvement in what goes on in the cyberworld. How effective could a parent be in the social media scene? Our society is forever changing because of social media and the complete difference in problems facing the youth today than say 20 years ago.

Annie Hawthorne's insight:

Guy speaking believes himself to be a "connoisseur" of selfies and Instagram, does this render him narcissistic?

 

"it's all about the likes" - as voyeurs, we put this idea of likes on a pedestal and if we do not get said likes, we develop this sort of internal mindset that we are not of a certain elite group 

 

social media (instagram) limits us- rules for likes, to look good, must have more followers than people you follow, must portray a certain appearance. Is this moral, in a sense? How does this affect us psychologically? If technology is supposed to be freeing and be part of our future of change, why is it constricting us in a certain fashion?
