Children are being pushed to the side or impatiently hushed as the parent stares at their phone to see who "liked" their tweet or favorited this and that, all while the child who really does like and love and favorites their parent are ignored and made to feel worthless and unimportant. This doesn't matter because hey, after all everyone else thinks I'm loving my child because look at this awesome picture of us all smiling together.
Families and friendships are NOT a burden. They are not less important than the fake social media the world loves to drown themselves in daily. Spouses are hurting, children are hurting. Friends and family are hurting. We no longer look each other in the eye and have a real conversation without glancing at the phone or tablet.
If you can't put your devices down for a few hours to spend real quality time with your family or friends, then that is a problem. Put it down. Fix the problem. Live in reality. Enjoy your family and friends again.
If you don't think that this is a problem then you are not living in reality. If you have someone clearly saying "THIS IS A PROBLEM" then guess what? IT IS A PROBLEM! Wake up and take it seriously, or wake up alone, lonely, with only your social media fakes to comfort you.
I'm not saying social media is not important or that everyone is fake, it's just my opinion that it should never take priority over relationships.
