On social media, we don't try to exist. We just try to be visible.

Now we too are able to use the media to create images of ourselves for the consumption of others. Now we too consume the images that those we know create of themselves. We appear to each other. We manage our appearance for each other. We do not even try to exist. We only strive to be visible. We emulate our media heroes, not by doing what they do, but by appearing as they appear, by being visible as they are visible.
