Behind Facebook’s Rose-Colored Glasses
Griffin Cottle is a former Examining Social Media Networks student now enrolled in Leveraging Social Media for Public Relations.
Social is supposed to be all about keeping it real. As he explains in an intro to his classmates, Griffin doesn’t think that’s always the case.
I think my least favorite social platform is Facebook, which I just deleted.
I think it’s because it’s both (1) all about ‘me’; and (2) it’s unrelentingly, unbelievably optimistic.
The stories that people share are all positive and incredible, and from knowing the people in real life I can say for sure, and not to be a total downer, that they bear no resemblance to reality.
Since the only use I could find for it was self promotion, I disconnected.
