Social media can be very appealing as it gives you the chance to share those things about your life that you like. In addition to this, you don’t have to share those things about your life that you don’t like. 

For some people, however, social media can be quite challenging, especially for those with social anxiety. In fact, it can feel as challenging as talking to someone face-to-face.

So much content is shared on social media. Even though you might feel conscious about what you post, your latest update is just a drop in the ocean.

When you’re engaged in a video call, you can feel self-conscious. However, focusing on other people can help. 

Try to avoid comparing yourself with other people. They only share the things on social media that they want to share, and sometimes those photos are airbrushed. Give yourself a social media break if you keep comparing yourself to others. 

If you don’t tend to interact with other people’s posts you might not make any meaningful connections. Try to interact a little more but without overthinking it.
