The Gap Between Who We Are in Real Life vs. on Social Media
Chase of New Age Creators considers himself as much a citizen of Snapchat as his home country of New Zealand. In fact, sharing his life online with people around the globe is second nature. In this clever video, he asks the question: “Am I the same me in real life as I am online?” Since people curate their own lives and show the highlight reels, the online self is not the same as a true self. It’s okay to embrace the online world, but one mustn’t forget that likes and shares only go so far. Real validation only exists when we are genuine and imperfect.
