How social networks are ruining your relationships?

image

Social networking helps us connect with people worldwide but do you know the same social networking is ruining your relationships.
To be honest it did mine and is doing so. But the fact is that this network is so wide that nothing can be done now as in we are trapped and there is no cure for that.
The ‘online thing’ or the ‘last seen thing’ or ‘the blue ticks’ or Even the display and statuses are the things which ruin a perfect relationship.
Certainly, people are more comfortable by connecting this way rather than actually meeting people or having an actual conversation on phone. I mean why? Meeting people is fun or phone calls are great! By connecting through these networks it creates unnecessary assumptions which creates unnecessary fights with unnecessary explanation having no conclusions at all. Nothing gets affected in return but your relationships, the terms that you maintain with that person.
But the problem is lack of time, the sole reason people don’t meet or call.
Straighten your priorities and atleast take out time for the people you consider important in your life. Otherwise the day is not far when you won’t be able to set your priorities straight because all the important people will be gone.. far away with all the misconceptions about you!.. 🙂

  1. I seriously don’t understand how people break up due to last seen issues… Like don’t you trust the person enough to believe that they are busy. If someone can’t give space to the other person, they don’t deserve to be with him or her

    1. Haha yes i agree.. it has both pros and cons.. and same here.. but the fact that people should rely less on these social networks to maintain a good relationship is something they should understand.. in short they should give each other time not on social network but by meeting in person .. such efforts matters.. 🙂 😀

  2. If you close your fb or atleast uninstall from phone.. You might save lot of things.. Tell friends I don’t use fb on phone. I have no time to login PC😃

  3. I think this is a great valid point, social media can certainly ruin relationships really fast. Yet, as a person who has to rely not on social media to post statuses or that but to communicate with my significant other, I see that it can sometimes be rewarding.
    Really god post!😃

        1. I don’t actually have a problem with those who feel comfortable interacting only on social networks but the fact is that less or more the outcome will be the same because the effort that you put in to interact with that person is very less so basically you should not expect loyalty and more efforts from the other person.
          Yes anand one day things will change :’) 🙂

    1. Haha yes I do agree but blogging Is no place for chatting, displays, statuses.. blogging is a way through which we interact, criticise, discuss, share in order to learn something new everyday.. :-). Also here everyone is unknown to you. So,basically no showoff. It’s just you and your thoughts and sometimes criticism or appreciation from the followers.. wordpress ❤

  4. Brilliant posts. I agree with this :-“… By connecting through these networks it creates unnecessary assumptions which creates unnecessary fights with unnecessary explanation having no conclusions at all…. ” Assumptions – are the worst thing that anyone can do , it creates issues where there are no issues.

    There is saying in English.

    Assume Makes an
    ASS out of U and ME

    Thanks for the great post.

  5. I partially agree but priorities may differ from person to person. excessively using different social media platforms to convince others you’re having fun is one of the worst part of it.
    I genuinely like to meet people myself but it doesn’t seems to be an nice idea for others and idk why!
    anyways it was a good read!

    1. The best way you could convince someone is through your personality, confidence, and humour and none of these could be expressed on social media in a way that would impress a person completely because people always end up making assumptions. Like is it only on social media?
      And I appreciate the fact that you prefer to meet people.. 🙂 it’s just that for the people to whom meet ups will be a nice idea would love to hangout with you.. thank you 😀 😉

      1. No it’s not 🙂 If you know it is ruining your life and you’re sure about it then there’s no one stopping you. That’s a pretty good enough reason for you to stop.

  7. Life is far too short and precious to be on a computer 24/7. I make room for my blogging in my Life, not the other way around. I’m still in fact, answering comments from yesterday’s post, and despairing I will finish. I have a very busy day on tomorrow’s schedule and the post I had planned for publishing for tomorrow I had wanted to leave comments open. Not sure at this point what I will do. Bottom line, LIFE is my priority. I do not post on FB (my WP posts are linked) and nothing more. IG forget it. I shut that down a long time ago. I focus on my blog and believe me, that is too time consuming as is, IMO. I refuse to allow technology to control me. (smile) So far so good!!! 🙂 ❤

    1. Well, that is actually appreciable then because this is a web trap and to escape this can very hard for people who are addicted to it. Definitely life is too short and precious to be in this trap. Blogging is another thing it helps us share our thoughts. Yes WordPress, blogs, comments can be time consuming but I think it’s worth it. 🙂 😉 and also I m happy that it is possible to refuse to allow technology to control someone. Hope it works here 😉

  8. I agree…there is no substitute for real friendships…but, I am happy to find that–absent an opportunity to meet certain people in the conventional context (face to face)–I have become friends with some wonderful people in the blogging community. Having said that, stay true to the sensitive and caring person you obviously are…. 🙂

    1. Yes definitely, blogging is another criteria, here we discuss, share, criticise our thoughts but to the people that we consider as a very important part of our life should not be shunned under this web trap.. rest I do agree with your opinion.. 😉 🙂

      1. Oh, I see what you are saying…so true….we can’t turn our backs on our first friends…face to face relationships can seem harder in lots of ways, and it wouldn’t do to get rid of–or neglect–them in favour of superficial online “friendships” 🙂

          1. You are so right that it is better to have a real conversation with someone on the phone or meet up rather than spending endless hours on Facebook. As I work at home and live alone I make sure I get out of the house to meet actual people every day.
