(anti-)social media

Social Media is the place on the Internet, where people are should be social. Should be. Because many of them aren’t social at all.  They don’t even bother with comments and responses coming from other people. They post selfies and use Twitter/Instagram or Facebook like how they use a mirror. Only looking at themselves.

selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking.

The quote above is from the Wikipedia. Let’s see the definition of Social:

Attitudes, orientations, or behaviors which take the interests, intentions, or needs of other people into account (in contrast to anti-social behaviour) has played some role in defining the idea or the principle.

Social Media isn’t necessary social. In terms of take the interest or needs of other people. Social Media is a channel where you can improve your social skills and interact with many people easier than ever before. But Social Media with anti-social people is only a collection of selfies.
