Speech on Social Media and its Impact on Social Values
Speaking ethically, values / social values are defined as the degree of importance of something, that something can be some action.
According to a UK based study, social values are impacted greatly because of our everyday deeds. This varies from time to time, and from thing to thing. I ask my audience today, how do you think the world around you affects your social values? Everyone here will have a different answer to my question but, what if I tell you, Gadgets you use every day are also a part of your contribution socially.
From media all the way to social media, the word has changed its form. Social media however is the elephant in the room no one mostly bothers to talk about. Social media has indeed taken over the world faster than a war would. You think an infection, or a plague spread is fast? You haven’t met social media then.
My point is that a lot of things today are being made up, focused especially to make your social life better. Mobile companies, and a lot of organizations that make up gadgets make sure that they are well optimized just to answer your need to use social media in time. It is quite clear from the aforementioned fact, that social media is a powerful yet a dangerous thing to be on. Why I used the word dangerous? It is because it is dangerous. You see you are being monitored all the time, Whatever you do, wherever you are it is being monitored. Your privacy is not your privacy anymore, and to me that is quite dangerous. However it is not the social media that I am against, I am against the way it is used.
Social values are affected greatly due to social media. When was the last time you went to your mother, sat close to her, and talked about how her day went? That’s right you don’t remember because you were too busy socializing with some people you probably won’t ever meet in your life. This can be changed through some very easy everyday practices, and you might have even tried to do it, But failed as your Facebook Status bar demands an everyday status.
Socializing every day, people have lost interest in their own lives, and gained more in how others are spending theirs. 10 years ago people used to exercise every day in the morning, however now you wake up in the morning, grab your smartphone, turn your Wi-Fi on, receive a lot of notifications , and spend at least 30 minutes more lying on the bed staring into a phone swiping up, and down.
I ask the audience today…Do we even know what is real, and what is not anymore? The life you’re spending on social media is basically a 50% virtual version of the real you solely made to impress unknowns. Where did we lose it? How did we come to this conclusion that I am standing here talking against the most viral trend of the past decade?
Social media has not only made us dummies to the internet but also has affected our health, and our social values altogether. Friends used to go out together, spend time together, come back with a lot of memories, and talk about it later. What now? Now you go out with your friends to a concert, and instead of enjoying the moment , you take out your phone , start filming what’s happening around you, and post it online just to see unknown people react, and comment on your activity. What’s the fun in the that? What you lost in that very moment was a bundle of memories watching your favorite singer performing for you.
Not just this , hearing my speech you yourself will go home, and think what you lost in the past week , how much time that could have been spent on something useful was spend on something you probably forgot the next hour.
People start comparing themselves to other people of the same sector, this grows a sense of complexity among them, and that’s when bizarre events start happening. A study shows that the sense of complexity alone in the US (Through a survey) states that people think their neighbor looks better in the pictures than them.
There is still time to come around, and fix what you lost. There is still time to think, and manage your life , see the people around you more often , Spend time with your families more than you already do. There is time, but what I am saying is useful only, and only if you’re willing to make a change yourself. Social media can be used for better purposes also, use it for that, and you’re on the list to making a change for the better.
I am going to make an end to this speech by saying that “Lets reverse the changes social media has made to us, you were born, and original, do not die a copy.”
