Reel to real: Social media impact on today’s life

Reel to real is just a metaphor used here to explain the present scenario. What is a reel? Reels are trending these days, it is generally short videos captured to upload on Instagram and Facebook. With the growth of the internet and social media platforms I.e. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and many more in the list. People are forgetting real-life and tried to be popular on social media. Everyone is running over fame and popularity.  People are forgetting to live and enjoy present moments and run over the world that belongs to no one.

What did we see today?

 When we go out or go to any party, people don’t care who stands or sits near them. They only know they have to cover a good reel or click a good selfie, so they should post on Instagram or Facebook.
