Hamburger Commercials, Social Media, and Our Lives

The curse of social media is that it allows us to dress up our lives like a McDonalds commercial. I am not advocating that we go out there and put all of our drama and business on blast for the world see/read. Trust me, there is enough of that nonsense out there to go around. However, as you are applying the Lo-fi filter to your latest Instagram pic, make sure you are not trying to apply any filters in real life. We already know that you are not perfect. We know you do not have it all together. That is why we like you. You are just like us.

Develop relationships that allow you to be you with no pre-scripted status updates, well thought-out and scheduled tweets, or 1977 filters.

Keep.

It.

Real.
