Social Media vs. Real World
Martin G. Lopez, Psychotherapist with Care and Counseling at Baptist Health South Florida, explains there are many appeals to be constantly connected to social media. One is that now everything is about instant stimulation and instant gratification. For example, people feel better about themselves right in that moment when they receive a like in a post on social media.
He says with social media you fall into a persona that you are creating for other individuals to see.
