We all know exactly what we’re thinking when we make social media posts.
Social media may seem relaxed and like a window directly into our friends’ lives, but we all apply some filters, overthinking, and facade to our interactions on the Web. To dismantle the faux honesty, this BuzzFeed video shows the “real” thoughts behind our typical social media posts and responses. Let’s be honest, we all know what a “maybe” RSVP on Facebook really means.
The video mostly focuses on the hyper-planning we all put into our social posts, from retaking a selfie multiple times for the best angle, to obsessively editing our “off-the-cuff” jokes to fit 140 characters. With a new year coming, maybe it’s time to come clean about our shady social media practices. Or just share this video and know all your friends are feeling guilty about the same things.
