Social Media During The Pandemic
We are living in hard times. It is quite mentally sufficient to manage lockdowns, policies, social distancing. We want to explore a different path of the pandemic, what do you think about the social media habits of people during a pandemic? Is it decreased or increased? We will examine all of these in our article.
Since we all have been our houses, we are almost united with our phones. Exit from Instagram, log in to Twitter, watch some videos from YouTube, and message with friends from WhatsApp… We know that this loop takes hours but you still have the energy to spend more hours.
We also should not look at negatively. The Internet provides us many beneficial services during pandemics. We can video chat with our relatives that we can not meet face-to-face. We can socialize by playing games. Also, we all can follow the recent news.
Also as an important fact during the COVID-19 is our mental health status. Sometimes social media can be very helpful to spread good thoughts and positivity. Since we live in the environment that we need it most, it is good to reach these messages.
This situation is reflected closely in the use of applications. Many video chatting applications, social media platforms, and more have increased their number of users and use of services.
