This is the social media generation. Some people interact more via their social media than with reality. When they wake up, first thing they do is grab their phones to check out updates on social media. They hold on to conversations they have with total strangers and value them more than conversations with people they get to see everyday.

Social media is a tool! Do not let it control you. You should control it. Do not fall for all the hype.
Some of the celebrities you idolize on social media use it as a tool. They post controversial photos sometimes to get a certain reaction from people, which they in turn use to generate income. But then some girls would want to imitate them without a proper understanding of what it is and what it should be.

Some of these social media celebrities are battling depression. Some of them get suicidal after having a very huge following on social media because it starts getting so toxic, exposing yourself to energy from millions of different people, some who mean well, and others who don't.

One of the most followed female teens on social media, Kylie Jenner admitted to have done lip injections because of insecurities. One that she developed due to exposure on social media and main stream TV. All the hateful and mean comments that people kept throwing at her, calling her 'ugly' gave her those insecurities.

"I have temporary lip fillers, it's just an insecurity of mine..."- Kylie Jenner on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians

"Today, I posted my Instagram picture three different times, I kept deleting it and re-posting it because I kept looking at the comments and they were bad comments. And I was like, 'Ahhh!' and I kept re-posting it. The people who take the time to write these comments are so mean and hateful, like they just want to come at you and hurt you."- Kylie Jenner on an interview with Teen Vogue Magazine
