Hello MIUIers,
Welcome to this week's Tech Wednesday!

The moment I wake up, before I even drink water, I hunt down my phone. And that's when it all starts: the personal messages to reply to, the I-woke-up-like-this update on my Snapchat story and scrolling through my Facebook feed extensively and ultimately ending this vital morning ritual with QQ, Twitter and some others.

And the thing is that it's pretty much the vital routine every millennial and many of you follow.


Once we've looked at everyone's updates, we gauge how much fun everyone else is having and then look at our own lives which seem so colorless compared to all our Facebook and Instagram 'friends'. The next step to counter this feeling of having a dull life is to put out forced updates with colleagues or with something as random as flowers just because you need to tell the world you're having just as much fun.



Without even realizing it, we're giving too much power to our social media. We're letting it run our actual lives.

Instead of going about things in reality, they've come to be heavily determined by our behaviour online. Without realizing, we have stopped appreciating other peoples' lives and started to post pics of ourselves doing the same thing in a better place or a better way. Doesn't this mean that we are no longer friends and just two people who are competing against each other on whose social life is better on the internet.



How often do you update your social media?

Is Social Media Turning Us Into Competition Junkies?

I'm not a social media fan, I'm not using Facebook, maybe I'm the only one here, but agreed with you about the fact that social media apps are turning us into competition junkies.

No. I think it all depends on the person. A thing can become a boon or curse depending how you use it.
