Over the weekend HerMamas.com creators spoke at a statewide
conference for women in Hermanas Unidas (HaU).
As proud alum of UCSB and members of HaU, Elissa and Irene wanted to give back in the best way they could. Together they prepared a presentation on social media pressures and balancing life's commitments such as career, relationships and health. The presentation was well received. However, something resonated with each when the audience shared insight on the inauthenticity of social media. Some found it motivational to see chronic goodness. Others judged the positivity as unrealistic while some labeled negative posts as honest posts.
Overall, it was clear that most believed social media enthusiasts shared a lot but didn't always "keeping it completely real!" Do you feel the need to live up to social media pressures like these? Are you often honest or likely to only show your "best face" on social networks?
This week on HerMamas.com we're turning truth on its head and filling the blog with more of it.
