8 Times Social Media Had Your Back

It seems as if social media has a pretty bad rep now-a-days, but if you ask me it has helped me more than hurt me. I like to think of social media as a really good way of connecting me to other people. There's also that solid confidence booster when your following to follower ratio is on point too. 


I want to personally thank the Social Media world. This realm had my back on multiple occasions, and with all the negative nonsense associated with social media, I wanted to approach it in a more positive light.  So here are, 8 times social media had my back


1. Relatable Memes (insert crying emoji)

Social media is great in the sense that you thought you were alone on something but then you see a tweet or a post about someone else with the same problem. You can find a little comfort in the fact that 37,000 other people were in the same boat as you.

2. One word: Filters

... Need I say more? No, but I will.
Filters have your back even when you don't. Those days when you don't do your makeup or those blemishes are coming through; those are the days' filters are your best friends. You can still post selfies that are fire.

3. The ultimate time killer.

You know when you're just chillin’ in the dentist office or waiting around for someone, your timeline becomes your best friend. Since there are so many mediums you have different timelines to scroll through. When you're done with Twitter, you go to Instagram, then Facebook, and when you're done browsing you suddenly realize you know way more about that Taylor Swift/Kimye drama than you did before you started scrolling.

4. Makes your life look amazing

You are in control of what you post. Social media gives us the ability to make it sound like you are living large (if you're lucky enough maybe you literally are). You have followers for a reason; give them something to root for. You can bet there's been a time when you took a photo and thought "this is gold" and for a brief moment in time it probably was. Also, that ex of yours probably saw it. They totally want you back now.

5. Aca-awkward excuses

Who doesn't use social media to get themselves out of elevator awkward situations? We all know no one is texting you when you need them to because that would be all too convenient. Whip out that bad boy and open up one of your fancy-schmancy apps and see what's happening in the virtual world versus the real one.

6. Gathering knowledge

AKA stalking. You met a guy at the bar who is a friend of a friend of a cousin of yours and now you’re Facebook stalking him. You need to know what you're getting yourself into if this is going to go anywhere, right? Gather all of that data. If you're lucky maybe he links his Instagram to Facebook and Twitter too, although like you would need that to find out his other handles. 

7. Coupons and deals 

How many times have you been able to get a cupcake or some discount because you shared something on Facebook? It is amazing! It is like you are rewarded for being social! 

8. That last minute gift idea

The only way I'll remember someone's birthday is if Facebook lets me know. Pinterest has come in clutch so many times for last minute birthday surprises. “21 things you need for your 21st birthday” basket? Consider your gift handled. I also think social media is great for last minute themed costumes. You won't catch me in some store-bought get-up. I'll DIY the hell out of a costume.
