When the paint is fresh on your newfound love, you feel like grabbing a loudspeaker and declaring to the whole world but there should be a limit to that.
The social media is something that has been used and abused by people especially modern-day couples who feel sharing everything about their relationship on social media is ideal and it is also a way of letting their friends and fans into their lives.
Below are risks of sharing your love life on social media.
Exposure: “Posting everything about your love life is exposing your privacy to the world, even though some couples have an upper hand over what goes and what doesn’t, it’s likely to get misunderstood for showing off, showing off could lead to envy or frenemies knowing your every move and think of how to harm you”.
Negative comments: “People who aren’t happy about their shitty love life will be happy to drag their negativity into your life by leaving negative comments on every post which you might say doesn’t get to you but when it gets consistent and others start entertaining them, you and your emotions are in trouble”.
Misjudgment: “There’s a huge possibility of getting misjudged thanks to your posts on social media, taking a trip abroad doesn’t mean you are rich, kissing your boo in a pic doesn’t mean you guys are the best couple on earth and you don’t go through struggles like others”.
Children exposed to bullying and shame: “Sharing about your love life or relationship on social media also puts your kids (for those who are parents) at risk and God forbid, you get a divorce; what happens to your kids at school or at Sunday school classes?why does everyone need to know what they are going through?”.
Public embarrassment: “What if you go through a breakup, what happens to those lovely posts? some even take down the pictures of the ex, but does that keep people from noticing you are now lonely and single? also, a mistaken post might just attract name calling or shaming for no good reason leaving you embarrassed in public”.
