What the Bow Wow Challenge Says About the Pressures of Social Media

There might be pressure to show the good and hide the bad, but if content is boring nobody would interact with it. Especially Instagram does not look like a personal log to me — where you might even rant all the time.

If I go out with some new acquaintances I’m not going to talk about my miserable day… I’ll try to spare them with that because I think that a more positive, upbeat story would be more entertaining for all of us. I think that context has its importance, and sometimes we’re just overreacting.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
