Alexander spent so much of his free time browsing around online on every social media platform out there. Dozens of accounts, hundreds of comments and posts about his mind, and thousands of hours wasted for doing nothing in particular in his real life.
However, all of that time spent online helped him create new everlasting friendships and relationships with people he may never see in person. New memories were made, interesting conversations had, and an endless supply of new things to be on the lookout for.
But with all of that time spent, certain things came back to haunt him. Things that he had hoped to never see again.
Alexander laid down in bed, quiet and comfortable, as his fingers casually scrolled through the many different social media accounts he had created. Bright, colorful images passed across his screen and various status updates were flooding into his feed. He chuckled whenever something caught his eye and he’d reply to comments that didn’t follow his personal outlook about a situation.
He spent hours like this every day. He had a number of other things that could have used that time wisely but he kept putting them off, saying that he’ll do them later.
That was the power of social media.
