I got sent this article by my supervisor, I’ve attached it but to summarise it’s about using what we post on social media such as Facebook (snapchat, twitter..) should be used to judge our mental health. Anyone who uses social media, I’m sure you’ve had a good experience and posted it on social media or had a bad experience and still posted it on social media 😂 (I know I’ve done it). It seems like we are more comfortable with expressing feels through a social media rather than talking to people, maybe because it’s easier rather than getting an immediate reaction and response of you told someone. However, would you want, say an email, telling you they think you’ve got a mental health issue such as a split personality just by the way you’ve typed your status? 🤔
This picture was posted to snapchat (social media platform) by a friend after a talk about future careeer plans. After the talk she felt confused about what to do after and even a bit overwhelmed. Using emojis she was able to express her feelings in few words rather than actually explaining it. Maybe it is easier to know how people feel by their social media.
