Just because you follow me on social media does not mean that you know me.
You don’t know me.
You couldn’t know me.
Unless you’ve had personal, private conversations with me, then there is no possible way that you could know me.
And yet, social media gives some people a reason to feel like they “know you.” Just because you “like” my pics or comment on what I post, does that mean that all of a sudden we know each other like that?
I don’t think so.
If you have to message me on Instagram, or Facebook or Twitter in order to get in contact with me…then you don’t know me.
If you knew me, you’d have my phone number. You’d be able to call me or send me a text. Or better yet, you’d be able to come and have a true, real, deep conversation with me.
People have to stop thinking that social media followers equal friendships.
Because they don’t.
