Essena O'Neill - Why I REALLY am quitting social media


  1. There has been a lot of chatter about this video. It is worth watching. What do you think?

  2. That's the problem when you create a "Fake You" as your creation; it's all about YOU (persona) and not about THEM (audience). The thing about being a storyteller online (using social media) is you have created something tangible at the end of the day, you can feel it, you can touch it, there's 3 holes punch into the piled up sheets of paper with 2 brass brads, one positioned on the top and one positioned on the bottom, and if you've filmed it, you can watch it; a story. She only had herself as the tangible thing, her face, her body, her words, all shown through lovely photographs that captured a fleeting moment of not HER life, but a fabricated one that was built on a concept of attracting numbers. We are so happy that she realized that a view count isn't a measurement of her self worth. The same goes for storytellers, the view count isn't a measurement of your self worth as a writer. Pay attention to the comments from your audience. Make it about them, and not about you. It will free you from measuring and inspire you to write more stories. Social media is a wonderful tool for the right uses. ~Meep
