Is social media preventing us from
taking truly relaxing vacations? It
seems that more and more, people
pick their vacation in terms of what
they can post to social media.
But at what price? Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Facebook is the main social platform for
posting vacation pictures. 52%
surveyed stated their friends’ photos
inspired their own travel plans. 76%
surveyed admitted to posting their
vacation photos to social networks [1]

"I have friends that pick their
vacation locations based on the
potential quality of the pictures they
will be able to post while on vacation”
Alexandre Beaulne
Financial Advisor

38% of children under 2
years old have used mobile
devices [2] and the very same
children are over-exposed on
social media by their parents
and even have a digital
footprint before they are born
[5]

In fact, this is the age
of selfies, and social
over-exposure
Photo: Alexandre Beaulne
“Writers across disciplines observe that
people create more digital photographs
out of a perceived need to share them”[3]
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
It is no wonder society
prefers posting the
daisies, than stop to
smell them
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Vacations are chosen for their
photo opportunities, rather than
a destination that will ease the
stresses that often ail us [4]
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Taking a good book or two
on vacation is often an
after-thought, but leaving
the house without a
mobile, is unthinkable... [7]
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
…and we opt for vacations
that will make friends
jealous or envious… [6]
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
…and strive for the likes
we can obtain while on
vacation, as those back
home work
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
It seems all our leisure time is spent
on posing, and of what we can post
to make others feel envious Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
“We’re born, we live for a brief
instant, and we die. It’s been
happening for a long time.
Technology is not changing it
much – if at all.” —Steve Jobs
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Studies indicate some mobile device owners
verify their devices every 6.5 minutes [8]
Photo: http://www.freepik.com/free-photo/hands-with-a-mobile_917169.htm
Social media users can post about
their pets up to 6 times a week [9]
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Rather than truly taking in
what nature has to offer
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
And taking the window of
opportunity to smell the
daisies
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
But how much of the simple
pleasures in life are people
losing out on as they seek to
create life experiences primarily
to advocate them online?
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Do put your phone away for a few hours and enjoy your vacation. Forget about
social media, forget about do’s and don’ts of posting pictures on social media.
Buy a fruity drink, stick your toes in the sand, and don’t take a picture of it.
- Christopher Muther, Boston Globe [10] -
Photo: http://www.photographielefebvrephotography.com/
Vacations should be to get away from the hustle
of everyday life, then kept as fond memories
within our minds. Photos should ultimately be
kept as keepsakes, and not for the intents of,
ephemeral, likes.
Now, select ‘next’ and just listen….
