  • Taylor Swift advices young people not to base their happiness on social media!

Taylor Swift says teenagers shouldn’t value their self-worth on the basis of the number of likes they receive.

Taylor Swift recently sat down to talk with ITV news. During the interview the pop starlet shared how people today especially the teenager’s judge themselves by the number of likes they receive on the social media.

According to Taylor people are more concerned about the material they are posting on social media services such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Snapchat. The popularity on such sites is now related to the happiness of a person.

Taylor stated how teenagers are linking their self-worth to the number of likes they received on a photo they just posted, but it is not a healthy way to perceive oneself. Taylor shared how she wants to always tell her fans popularity on social media is not important and if a picture receives either 50 or even 10 likes it should not define a person’s happiness and sanity.

Taylor did have some positive points to share about the power of social media and also talked about how social media can be a force if used for the good. Taylor specifically mentioned social media is a good platform to address serious issues such as sexuality and gender inequality. 

Earlier in the year social media analysts declared Taylor Swift is on top of her social media game and handles it better than any celebrity in the industry currently. The ‘Blank Space’ singer was also placed at number 64 in the Forbes list of 100 world's most powerful women.

Taylor Swift recently made headlines when she penned an open letter to Apple Music calling them out for not paying new and struggling artists during the 3 month trial period.
