5 Tej kev cov nyom ntawm Social Media

Qhua ncej ntawm Jessica Barefield

Cia kuv pib los ntawm kev muab ib tug disclaimer. Qhov tsab xov xwm no yog tsis yog hais txog yuav ua li cas phem kev tawm yog. Siv nyob rau hauv moderation, nrog rau txoj kev lub plawv hwj tau lub cev, nws yuav ua tau ib tug zoo tshaj plaws. Tus taw tes ntawm no tsab xov xwm no rau taw tes tawm ib co kev uas social xov xwm yuav ua tau ib tug pitfall rau cov ntseeg lub neej thiab xav kom koj mus xyuas koj lub plawv thaum nws tawm los rau koj cov kev tawm noj thiab kev koom tes. Cov no yog cov tsib txoj kev uas kev tawm yuav pub peb muaj txoj kev txhaum lub siab nyiam.

1. Social xov xwm yuav nkim koj lub sij hawm

Qhov no yog tsis muaj dab tsi peb tsis tau hnov ​​ua ntej, tab sis nws yog tsim nyog rov qab ua dua. Peb nco ntsoov nyob rau hauv Efexaus 5:16-17 hais tias cov hnub yog kev phem thiab peb yuav tsum ua qhov zoo tshaj plaws kev siv ntawm lub sij hawm muab rau peb. Xav txog rau ib tug lub sij hawm ntawd yog dab tsi koj yuav tsum tau ua es tsis txhob khij tag nrho cov qhov chaw. Thaum tos nyob rau ntawm ib lub sij hawm, peb yuav kom ib daim ntawv teev cov neeg mus thov Vajtswv rau rau peb tus xov tooj thiab siv cov ntxiv feeb nyob rau hauv kev thov Vajtswv rau peb cov tsev neeg thiab cov phooj ywg. yeej, nyob rau ib lub sij hawm los yog lwm, peb yog tag nrho cov muaj txim txhaum ntawm kev siv sij hawm nyob rau hauv Facebook nyob rau hauv ib hnub twg thiab yeej tsis qhib li Lo Lus ntawm Vajtswv. Vim txhua txhua lub caij yog ib qho khoom plig los ntawm tus Tswv, nws yog tsim nyog nug koj tus kheej, "Puas muaj ib yam dab tsi ntau worthwhile hais tias kuv yuav tau siv kuv lub sij hawm rau?"Feem ntau ntawm cov sij hawm, cov lus teb no tej zaum yog.

2. Social xov xwm muab ib tug platform rau koj txhua txhua thought

Kuv xav tias cov solidarity ntawm xo rau kev sib raug zoo xov xwm yuav ua kom yuam kev koj mus rau hauv xav tias nws yog lawv xav tshuaj rau rooj vag yog hais txog dab tsi. peb tsis txaus siab, peb anonymously ntaus neeg, peb saib cov neeg nyob rau hauv txoj cai, thiab peb hais txawm peb xav txog celebrities, raws li yog hais tias lawv twb tsis cov neeg tiag tiag. Thiab peb ntseeg tau tias peb tsis tshua muaj rau teb rau tej yam ntawm nws. Tsis txhob yuav fooled los ntawm cov kev ceev ntiag tug ntawm koj chav tsev txoj cai tam sim no-yuav muaj tsis muaj dab tsi lwm tus thaum peb sawv ua ntej uas muaj sia nyob Vajtswv thiab muab ib tug account rau peb cov lus. Mathais ceeb toom rau peb zoo nkauj meej, "Nyob rau hnub ntawm kev txiav txim, neeg yuav muab tus account rau txhua tus careless lo lus uas nws hais. "Cia peb yuav nco ntsoov txog qhov no ceeb toom rau tom ntej no lub sij hawm peb hloov peb raws li txoj cai.

3. Social media can fuel discontentment

Thaum peb siv lub sij hawm ncua pouring tshaj lwm leej lwm tus ua thiab hais tias, nws thim peb mloog kom tag nrho cov tej yam uas peb tsis muaj los yog nco tawm on. Nws yuav ua rau peb mus nug yog vim li cas peb lub neej tsis zoo tib yam. Vim li cas tsis kuv xav seb uas quote? Kuv xav tias kuv muaj nws kev txiav txim zoo ntawm style. Lawv tshiab lub tsev yog txoj kev loj tshaj peb! Yog hais tias peb tsis ceev faj, peb caug feeb nyob rau hauv Facebook los yog Pinterest yuav tawm koj puas unproductive, unattractive, thiab underwhelmed nrog koj tus kheej lub neej. Henplais kom peb, "Cia koj lub neej pub dawb los ntawm kev hlub ntawm cov nyiaj, thiab yuav cov ntsiab lus nrog dab tsi koj tau, Nws tau hais tias, 'Kuv yeej yuav tsis cia koj los yog tso nej tseg koj.' "Peb yuav thaum kawg yuav cov ntsiab lus nrog peb lub neej ua neeg ntseeg vim hais tias peb yuav muab txhua yam uas peb yuav tsum tau nyob rau hauv Tswv Yexus. Nug koj tus kheej seb koj siv ntawm kev tawm pab koj ntseeg hais tias qhov tseeb no.

4. Social media can fuel pride and keep you inwardly focused

Social xov xwm yuav sai sai ua rau peb tus kheej podium rau nws tus kheej-qib. We have to ask ourselves what our motivation really is for posting the things that we do. Yog peb tab tom nrhiav rau pab koj tu siab los yog xav qhuas? Koj peb xav tau zoo xav ntawm los yog khav txog kev lom zem tej yam uas peb twb tau ua? Koj lossi xyuas yuav ua li cas muaj ntau yam "yam koj nyiam" los yog "retweets" koj tus ncej txais? Tag nrho tej no roj txaus siab thiab kom peb teem rau peb tus kheej. Qhov no yuav ua tau ib tug tshwj xeeb yog nyuaj pitfall rau tus neeg uas muaj ib tug platform uas extends tshaj lawv cov phooj ywg thiab tsev neeg. Whether you do music or have a popular blog, xwb vim hais tias muaj ntau tus neeg yuav mloog tsis tau txhais hais tias txhua yam uas los rau lub siab yog muaj nqis hais tias. Peb yuav tsum nco ntsoov hais tias retweets, comments, thiab yam koj nyiam tsis tau muab legitimacy mus rau dab tsi peb tswg. Vajtswv pom lub txug ntawm peb lub siab lub ntsws thiab yeej tsis haib haib los ntawm ib tug zoo-crafted ncej. Raws li kuv Samuel 2:3 cautions, "Tsis txhob cia tham li tau hais khov kho los yog cia koj lub qhov ncauj hais lus xws arrogance, rau tus Tswv yog ib tug Vajtswv uas paub txog thiab los ntawm Nws deeds muaj kev nyuaj. "

5. Social media can distort our view of relationships

Rau txhua txhua pab tau kev sib raug zoo xov xwm muaj rau kev sib raug zoo, muaj yog ib tug drawback. Nws yog ib qho yooj yim kom mus nrog cov uas koj hlub (tej zaum yooj yim heev?). Koj tseem muaj sib sib zog nqus, muaj nuj nqis sib tham nyob rau hauv tus neeg? It is easy to keep up with a lot of people you love—and a lot of people you don’t even know (tej zaum muaj ntau heev?). Yog koj oversaturated nrog lub ntsiab lus ntawm 300 tib neeg lub neej uas koj nyob nraum tsis ua ib tug zoo txoj hauj lwm ntawm kev hlub lub 10 cov neeg uas koj saib lub lim tiam rau lub lim tiam? Peb yuav sai sai qhia peb tus kheej yuav tsum tau txais kev pab ntawm cov ntaub ntawv es tsis txhob lovers ntawm cov neeg. Paub txog ib tug neeg lub neej thiab sib koom txhua yam hais txog koj tus kheej lub neej ntawm kev sib raug zoo xov xwm tsis yog tib yam li ib tug phooj ywg tiag tiag. Ntawm cov hoob kawm Yexus yog lub zoo meej piv txwv ntawm dab tsi nws txhais tau hais tias yog ib tug yeej muaj tseeb tus phooj ywg. Raws li Yexus qhia, "Kuv hais kom yog no: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, hais tias nws muab nws txoj sia rau nws cov phooj ywg. "Friendship yog ntau tshaj li qhov tawm ntawm cov txheej xwm tshiab thiab cov duab. Friendship yog kev txi. Nws yog kev coj tus kheej lwm tus lub nra. Nws tsis yog virtual-nws yuav tsum yog tangible.

    This is so true. I will openly admit that I waste hours and hours of my time and days on social media and all the points brought forward, I can directly relate to. I know in my mind and heart that I want to and have to cut it out, or greatly diminish it, but it isn’t easy. But the message you have conveyed and the words of God that you’re using to reinforce this speak to me clearly. Thank you for this article :)

  2. TyronTeb

    Very good read! Was never involved in social networks until a little over a year ago and these are some of the reasons why. I have actually been thinking about deleting my social networks to focus on what needs to be focused on. Lot of good points here. Thank you for taking your time to write it and share.

  3. DanielaTeb

    Wow! Yog li ntawd yeej muaj tseeb. I definitely need to work on my social media intake. It’s very consuming one of the very reasons I stopped getting on Pinterest. Thank you for sharing.

  4. StaceyTeb

    Thank you so much for posting this. I have been fighting with myself about getting on Facebook. Seems lately all it does is make mad angry. This was everything I needed to hear and will reread when I need to be reminded. Thank you and Trip. Vajtswv foom koob hmoov rau.

    You are an inspiration! So many good points you have here. Praise God for your wisdom that’s understandable and very relevant to our generation! :)

    I have been cut to heart by this powerful sharing. I believe we are all found wanting in this area. Thanks Trip and Jessica. May God continue to use you .

    Thank you so much Jessica for these words that are so true and conviction given. May God continue to use you and you household :-)

  8. AngelaTeb

    Thank you for this enlightening post! This should prompt us to fix our eyes on Jesus and less on others and self.

    Blessings!

    Ua tsaug rau koj heev npaum li cas, for thelittle peoplewith out a voice it speaks numbers to think oursocialvalue is derived from social media. Thanks for the wake up call !

  10. Oyishoma EmmanuelTeb

    That is so true. We waste precious time on social networks without purpose, and whenever purpose is not on ground, abuse is inevitable. I myself i’m guilty of this at times; but i pray for the grace to redirect my priorities.

  11. ADIN MOORETeb

    This is a really good post. Thank you for sharing it with us, enjoyed reading it and it opening my eyes to the pitfalls of social media. :) Hlub & kev sib haum xeeb.

    Exactly why I PERMANENTLY deleted my Fakebook in early 2012. Just like how I gave up cable TV in 2001, I don’t miss either Fakebook or TV. FB makes it easy to love yourself, which is idolatry. Being on the computer for work (video editing) is all the more reason why I do not want to spend time on it in my free time, but it is so easy to waste time on the computer. If I’m on YouTube, it’s to watch edifying videos from other Christians. I HIGHLY recommend every Christian to read this article: “Forming our Souls with Facebookby Shane Hipps (Second Nature Journal dot com)

    Omg I was so convicted last week by exactly what you saidspending hours on facebook that should be spending in the word! I love this blogkeep the knowledge coming!

  14. PriscillaTeb

    I like your balanced position; not completely condemning social media, yet pointing out the issues/tendency for sinfulness. Reminds me of iLove.

  15. ChristaTeb

    Wow! This is amazing! Every point hit me and I really needed to hear it. Ua tsaug rau koj heev npaum li cas. Vajtswv foom koob hmoov rau!

  16. RozTeb

    Ua tsaug ntau heev rau koj sau ntawv no. It is so very insightful and has helped me a lot in recognizing that I need to limit my time with social media. Many of the things you’ve described are all things I can relate to. Spending too much time on social media is not beneficial for my spirit your blog has really put it in words for me. Again thanks so much

  17. Clement MagomboTeb

    God bless you for sharing this. I need to be pure and thoughtful in whatever I do online/offline. Txoj kev tshav ntuj thiab kev thaj yeeb

    This article caught my eye quick because my job is online and a big part of it is social media. Before this was my job I could completely relate to this. It really can be a time waster if there is no self control. It should be something approached with caution for sure!

  19. NaishaTeb

    I saw this link on my Facebook and was dreading to read it because I knew it would convict me and today I said, “ok… Let me have it.lol. Just about everything in here is true about how I spend my time online and I am going to assume that the person who wrote this article would not have posted this if she had not struggled with this herself in some way. So it is nice to know that there are other people who carry or did carry the same burden. At church you tend to feel like you shouldn’t admit to stuff like this, because we have created the idea that no one else struggles with it. Just the other day I was talking to my husband and telling him how I deleted some apps on my ipod (yes I still have an ipod and not an iphone, by choice) because it created unhealthy/ungodly thinking. I use to play Home Design where you can create your dream home and in turn I would become so depressed with the house we live in. I still love playing Mall World on FB and confessed to my husband that I like it because my avatar is someone I am not, she is pretty, skinny, independant and it is fantasy that I enjoy living through. Maybe I sound weird or people may think I shared too much but this is my own conviction. Thank you for reinforcing what I know by sharing your own conviction with us writer and other commenters.

    I will be deleting my Facebook and Instagram for a while. This was my wake up call. My husbands has been telling me about this and the discontentment has gone too far! Thank you Jessica!

  21. RJTeb

    Ua tsaug rau koj! I’m gonna take a week long break from Facebook, email, and Instagram and work on those relationships I have with people I see in my daily life.

  22. TylerTeb

    Fantastic stuff! I’m a high school student and the part about putting so much stock into retweets and likes is so true! I definitely think their are some good things that can come out of Twitter/Facebook but it’s all about where you heart is!

    Really good post! Social media can be a little too much but when I see souls reach and they are planted into a church with their families and serving in church and in their community with the families.. That’s amazing to me.

  27. TheMesengerTeb

    That is sooooo true it can take time away from god also you won’t seem to have the time 4 him we’ll cut it off make the time

  28. katTeb

    awesome read. admittedly, i spend too much time looking at pretty boys and pretty things and getting caught up by all these superficial things on tumblr that i tend to push God aside. it’s a sad, sad thing; i could be reading up on His word and spending more time with Him….thanks for the eye opener!

  29. CharityTeb

    Wow. I thought I was doing good because I was just on two networks. This definitely helped me check myself. I thought because I wasn’t sinning I was okay, and of course there is always room for improvement.

  30. YashiraTeb

    God bless you for sharing this and thank you! This post just got me thinking about the time I waste with social media and its networks. It has helped me to re-think what I’m doing with time.

  31. txoj kev hlub tshuaTeb

    I agree with every point. I for sure have been avoiding instagram because I found myself comparing my self to other girls on there. It’s not good to feel ungrateful. I like looking at cute animals. lol
    I considered deleting my fb, instagram accounts numerous times. I do think it’s good for keeping up with family members far apart though. :)

  32. home decorTeb

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Ua tsaug rau koj!
