Behavioral changes and social media

Behavioral changes and mental challenges

To get more likes, followers and comments a person can constantly be on social media. 

To be in limelight on social media, one can engage in risky behavior. To gain more shares, likes, smiley face, heart, share and care – one can post unrealistic things, could play dangerous pranks, could put others down, posting embarrassing things, being mean to others, cyberbullying peers and picking on weak personalities. Other behavioral change could be rash driving, making video while driving or in spots which could be a risk to one’s life and put life in risk in unsafe situation – all just prove how great I am and to get more likes.

Such behavioral change is also mental illness. It increases anger, causes depression, anxiety, makes a person unhappy and mood out. It does not allow an individual to grow as a normal person. Everything a person do is to gain popularity and it limits inner growth.
