Look I’m a social media strategist and that saying is so BS. You have passion for great content that's creative and inventive not social media as a whole.

Social media is a toxic wasteland half the time 🤢

My guess is that they really enjoy using social media a lot.

You know damn well that social media is a micro bubble within the advertising world, with it's own intricacies and best design and marketing practices/ways to reach people. Someone can have a passion for that kind of work over, let's say, massive production jobs, or website design, etc.

Please stop being condescending. There's enough negativity and highschool behavior in the advertising world as it is.

I love social media. But honestly I have built my career on the paid social buying side and deep down love the insights, creativity, and ability to see performance in real time. There aren’t many other mediums where your audience is able to tell you if they hate or love something in real time. It’s cool to build relationships with audiences, gives you freedom to be a little more casual and human, offers extensive creative opportunity, AND you have the potential to go viral with multi-million dollar budgets or no budget at all. It’s a shitshow, but a fun shitshow.

So yeah. I guess you can say I have a passion for social media. 🤷

People are obsessed with social media. I can’t even spend time with people without it turned into some broadcasted event. Seriously exhausting but feel that I’m the only one who feels this way, especially in my “millennial demographic”. I’m not sitting on a high horse either, it just pisses me off. (Sigh) 😴
