Wander Talks: Episode 2 – Influence of Social Media

influence of social media

There is no doubt social media influences us even when we think they don’t.

KTB presents Episode 2 of Wandertalks with Rachel Jimenez. Last week, Rachel sat down with Tampa Tableaux. This week, the influence of social media on society was the topic of discussion.


Influence of Social Media

We talked about Snapchat and it’s integration into social situations where they would not be accepting of “endless selfies” as they are now. If you didn’t already know, Snapchat is another social media app where you take pictures and send them to select people (or to your story) for a select amount of time. Over the few years that it’s been around, it’s evolved into such a strange method of communication, and in a slightly creepy way. You can screenshot pictures, you can watch and replay people’s stories, and now send money via Snapchat. Is this the new Paypal?
We also dove into the new fad that is the fish face, and male version known as “bear face.” These facial expressions are commonly paired with the ever-popular “selfie” and are usually found spread amongst every Instagram profile. This portal of social media allows you to post and edit your pictures all in one, and is one of the first apps where the number of followers has become a critical value marker. This is what seems to be the downfall of the up and coming generation.
Facebook became a topic as we started to discuss the differences between the social media accounts and the character behind the profiles. Each social media account has a different purpose and allows the user to basically create different self-identities within each one. For example, someone’s content on LinkedIn (a resume account) can differ greatly from that same person’s Facebook, and can potentially pose a problem when in the position of trying to get a job. Employers frequently visit social media sites to further check out a possible employee, and the thought is that your accounts could actually jeopardize a job opportunity.
Social media has had such a large impact on society within the span of 10 years, and the effects it has had and can have are ridiculously limitless. I hope our conversation was informative and stimulative.
