Don't get me wrong, I love social media, but we need to have a limit on what we share there. I am going to explain why I never share my private life on Social Media.
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT MY FAMILY:
We all have Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and other social media accounts that share our information, how we look, what we like, who are our friends and relatives. We share what we eat, wear, do, as well as how successful or unhappy we are. We like to feel connected and see what is going on in the lives of our friends, people we admire or even hate. All of this is fine. But... my private life should stay private. I noticed when I ask my followers what they would like to know, they always ask questions about my husband. Hehe, I guess because no one ever saw him on my Instagram. You might have seen his hands, heard his voice, spotted his feet for advertising some clothing lines along with me, but that is all.
Many of us share our happy moments of life that we want to remember, or even brag to make other people feel happy or envious for us. I decided that my social media life should only be about me and my business. There are no pictures of family members, because I respect their privacy. There is no need to know more. There's plenty of me on the Internet as it is!
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW WHERE I AM RIGHT NOW:
I also believe, no one needs to know what are you doing at that exact moment, or where are you located in real time. This is all because SAFETY is important. You might have seen my insta stories of my travels. Out of safety reasons, I never share pictures from my precise location on the same day. My insta stories are always delayed. I know it is not very honest, because it confuses my followers, believing like I am in Paris right now, but I am actually somewhere on the Eurasian continent writing this post. Unfortunately, we live in a world where you should be more careful.
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW HOW I'M FEELING RIGHT NOW:
I understand some people use social media as a means to vent. However, you must be careful about putting raw emotions out on the Internet. I believe in trusting only my family and good friends with such feelings. You seriously don't know who's watching, or recording you, and you have to be careful about the things you say when in an emotional state. Don't spread something that what you will later feel bad about. This mentality is why I try to avoid putting personal feelings out for public viewing.
