They say that social anxiety is: “Also known as social phobia, social anxiety disorder is the excessive and unreasonable fear of social interactions and situations. Often having the fear of being criticized, judged or closely watched, people with social anxiety tend to avoid social communication, especially outside of the world of anonymity offered through online services.” (https://www.learning-mind.com/social-anxiety-disorder/).
If so … how can social media help curtail these disorders thoughts, not make worse, these conditions, that are already pre-existing, this I think is a big concern. People who are not heavily interacting in person, but interact online heavily, and have social anxiety, usually people who should be social online, should have knowledge or experience being social in real life, and able to therefore adjust online well. That would only make sense in the long run. Therefore its best to practice these skills in real life, and not run the risk of losing these positive life skills, with too much online interaction and not enough in person interaction, this may worsen this condition. Writing is one thing, and trauma therapy is another, and blogging is one thing, but interaction, social interaction, seems to be vital a key component to normalcy.
