Why are a lot of people sharing every hour, every minute of their day with the world?

Facebook has given us the opportunity to reach out and connect with almost the entire world. To get in contact with whoever you want and for people to advertise themselves and their companies.

Just by creating an account with your personal information and adding your friends and family you can show your everyday life and talk to everyone around you. You can even like accounts that interest you and meet others that think and like the same.

But to the question I’ve been asking myself almost since I created my own account, in the beginning I was kind of good at posting my little “posts” on my Facebook wall about my whole life, what I was eating and who I hung out with. But after a while I started to ask myself, why is it so important to get a “like” or a comment on me eating ice-cream?

For me this became a standing question every time I scroll down and look on other people’s feeds. Why is it that we feel the need to display our entire life on a social media? If I tell the person next to me in the store that I had porridge to breakfast, that would be super weird. But if I post a picture or a post about it on Facebook, the person in the store might give me a like.

Facebook started out like a hot or not website. And in 2004 the founders launched the Facebook, that today has 2 billion monthly users. It’s the biggest social media platform today and has about 20,600 employees.

But for me it’s still a hot or not page. Just because everything is based on how many likes and comments you get.
