I have always been socially awkward and social media helps me interact with people. I am super shy and that stops me from making friends. I am not sure how many struggle with this as well. Do you find it easier to interact on social media?

Yes, I like to be given the time to formulate a response, and that hardly ever happens in person. Social media allows us to control our image better, not perfectly, but better. I don't care about external judgement, as long as people judge what I am, and not what they think I am. Social media allows me to express who I am to avoid most misunderstandings. Back to the first sentence, if you asked me this question in person, I would have said... Yes.

We have the same exact thought. I like social media so I have no problem with interacting through the internet.

@kepweng If I'm not socializing, I'm watching videos or playing games. I'm more addicted to the whole internet than social media itself. I take virtual interactions and relationships seriously, so I also need to take breaks because it can get overwhelming.

It is much easier. I have social anxiety and I'm an introvert so I can still talk to people without having to see them face to face haha

Yes I do, but I feel it is important to have social interactions with people. I have been shy all my life, I am now 29 and have barely started to come out of my shell, by force. I wanted to be able to have connections with people through being social. Its still a struggle but it has been rewarding to see myself become more confident through my interactions with people. You need to remember that no matter what happens, even if you look dumb, or think you look dumb, you're the only one who really cares if you look a certain way. People are always going to talk or judge, try to learn how to become comfortable in your own skin. I hope this may help you in your journey through life, my experience is the only advice I can give. Social media definitely helps with many parts of being interactive with others. Its a good way to start relieving some of the awkwardness of personal interactions by getting to know others in a way thats comfortable for you.

Social media is easier for a lot of people. Some take advantage of it , by hiding behind the computer and can harass others.so good and bad can come of it.
