Most of us have grown up in this world of social media. But how many of us can say that we had a supportive online community that could help us through whatever we were going through?
From the moment social media and other online forums began, the connection between people has been somewhat superficial. Such platforms were created for us to connect with those far away from us, but most of us fall into a rut of comparing ourselves with other people.
Social media today is flooded with negative news and trolls who resort to online bullying; there’s very little positivity around. Trolling has become a paid job now; people get paid to spread hate online.
Many succumb to cyberbullying every year, which is heartbreaking. 1 in 3 people have encountered some sort of cyber threat. That doesn’t mean nothing can be done about this. If each us puts in the effort to make online spaces more positive, there will surely be more positivity to go around.
Here are some things you can do to spread positivity online:
Spread positive content
We can all agree that most of the posts shared on social media are quite negative. Uncensored images of gore, stories about famine, ongoing war in parts of the world, or even stories of abuse and crime have flooded the internet.
While it’s good to be aware of what’s going on around you, you can’t disagree with the fact that it’s not a pleasant sight and it affects you more deeply than you’d imagine.
Try to make a conscious effort of sharing positive posts online. Share posts that have humor in them to cheer up someone who’s maybe having a bad day; share posts about little things that make you happy, share posts about kind gestures you see in your everyday life.
AWESOME is one such app that revolves around positivity. You get points for being kind to others and making the world a happier place. Join this new upcoming social media platform to spread smiles across the world.
Encourage people to speak up
People are now speaking up about topics like sexual abuse, harassment, bullying, and mental health more often. The increased awareness has helped people to know that they’re not alone in this fight; it also helps many get the help they need.
There’s still a lot to be done, however. Every year 15 out of 100,000 people take their lives in the United States. Mental health issues, heartbreak, financial burdens, and bullying are some of the reasons why we’re still number 27 on the board.
Encourage your followers to speak up about the issues they’re going through. Putting such information out there can help friends and family realize what you’re going through and that they need to be there for you. They can get you the help and support you need.
