Am I naive to believe I'm not unhealthily attached to technology? I see a lot of my friends talking about how sending snapchat streaks is a "digital prison," and I just don't understand why they treat it so seriously. I mean, if someone initiates streaks with me I reciprocate it, but I never consider it to be an obsession or a necessity. It's just crazy seeing people I know talking about ending their snapchat streaks because it's stressing them out. How many streaks do you have!? I think I have maybe seven, but I guess if you have thirty that must be stressful. I don't know why you would just randomly send streaks though; I think they're dumb. I guess people just like the accomplishment of keeping something up for a long period of time. I don't get it. It's weird seeing people so attached to technology that it bothers them. I'll admit it: I'm dependent on technology. I'm also dependent on food, water, electricity, cars, and other people. Being dependent on things isn't necessarily bad. Could I live without social media? Probably not. I like talking to my friends, I like expressing myself, and I like looking at content that interests me. Social media has existed since 2003, it isn't new. If you feel like technology/social media is a prison, it's not social media. It's you.
