Photo sharing on social media killing real life enjoyment

Picture perfect

A study has found that 58 percent of people believe that “posting the perfect picture has prevented them from enjoying life’s experiences”.

The study was conducted by the New York Times best-selling authors Joseph Grenny and David Maxfield, who surveyed 1,623 people to see how social media affects their lives, Mashable reported. Maxfield decided to explore this subject after going on vacation with his family on his 60th birthday and finding that he was more focused on documenting the moments than he was on experiencing them. He and Grenny have come up with a name for it —Trophy hunting. Trophy hunters are driven by something other than experiencing things and shooting photos to remember those moments — they want trophies to hang up.
