Curated Lives and Social Media Stories

It’s often said that social media, like all the best superpowers, is a tool that can be used for good or for evil. But it also enables us to curate our lives.

Through social media posts, we decide what others see.

And perhaps more tellingly what they don’t.

Often our Instagram photographs, Facebook statuses, and pithy tweets become a highlights package. A life lived through flashy filters. A life without struggles.

Sometimes it goes the other way.

All of the woe and none of the joy.

Neither tells the full story.

Think about the posts you put forward. And the story you want to tell.

Next time you browse social media. Next time you compare your life to others, remember it is but a highlights package, a greatest hits, a story half told.

Curate wisely.
