“Aww, I love you too babe! Happy 2 month anniversary!!” Posted 11:58p.m.
With the increasing amount of interactions between people all over social media, there is a trend between a pair who enjoy openly expressing love, excitement, and joy with the world by posting a tremendously annoying amount of text/pictures on their Facebook walls. On the contrary, there are others who don’t like to keep their social media updated as often, as if they prefer keeping their personal relationships to themselves as private information. So how does this use of media exactly affect those who are already in a relationship, and those who do not display as much “PDA” happen on the interweb?
Journalists often like to follow popular and personal social media sites in order to utilize public tweets for news stories. A fairly recent article by Meredith Engel shares that while some people who are in a relationship like to brag about their life story together, some are simply suffering from a lack of relationship reassurance, desiring to let it be known to the public that they are indeed, in a loving relationship. Surprisingly, there are more introverted people who take advantage of the internet to share the things that they are too afraid to share in public.
Then does that mean that those who do not utilize the internet to share posts of their significant others don’t really have anything to brag about? Possibly. Aren’t insecure about their relationship? Definitely not! Every person and every relationship is bound to be different. Couples who enjoy posting about one another on the internet frequently doesn’t necessarily mean that the relationship they are in, is in danger. Nor does it mean that pairs who don’t often share things with the public are perfect in maintaining their relationship.
