Authenticity in the Age of Social Media – Share your thoughts…

image copyright neha 2019

Hello Everyone,

I have recently come across multiple posts and videos that talk about “being your true authentic self” from celebrities and non celebrities alike. Although I believe in the sentiment, I find the term to be overused and often misrepresented by individuals simply trying to be part of a fad. “Speak your truth” and “be yourself” have become popular tags than authentic sentiments. I find it to be an irony and want to know what your thoughts are on the matter. Genuineness is such an appealing quality and something that I always look for in people…it has become harder to find under the veil of social media. Would love to hear you out in comments and perhaps compile a follow-up post with some of your thoughts on the matter. Please include your blog url to be considered. There is no deadline for participation yet, I will close comments once I feel we have reached a substantial number. Please be professional with your words, rude or hateful comments will be removed.

 

Thank you and hope to see you all participate in the discussion!

 

Happy Friday!
