Bothered by IG and FB Stories
« on: September 26, 2019, 04:02:11 PM »
I used to have this coworker when I was working in a different school. Sweet boy, very efficient at his job. He was fun to be with, and the circle of friends we were both in were once very tight-knit. But we work in different schools now and don't really keep in touch. We just say hi once in a while in social media.

But lately his stories have been bothering me. I feel like he is whoring himself on social media,  living for the likes and views. I do not want to judge him; maybe he wants to earn money being a vlogger and is on his way to amassing followers, but I greatly feel that he needs to be more discerning about his content. I am worried, as a friend and maybe an older sister, but it's not my place to tell him off. Especially because we have not talked-talked or even seen each other in a long time.

I think he needs professional help. And some detoxing from social media. He's younger and I know social media can have that effect on young people. It’s just weird to know someone who's like those famewhores. Maybe he's still trying to find out what works but I hope he exercises more care and prudence with choosing the images and videos that he posts.

Ive been talking with another ex-officemate and she feels the same way I do about this boy. It’s just sad that we can't help him the way we want to.
