How social media is affecting the way we write

Hello dear Readers,

I wanted to do my first post about something that has been on my mind for a few days. The other day I watched this interview and this guy said that social media is what we are, that we have became what we post. After I listened to this I was a little confused and immediately I thought that this is not necessarily true because we don't know if what a person posts is true all the time and to me that means a Facebook page doesn't necessarily show who a person is but then I remembered  of a time when I heard this writer saying that writers are what they write. Then I couldn't  help but think and question myself on how social media is affecting the way we write. I;m not talking about how social media helps your writing (promotion, marketing, sharing) but when we are actually writing. Do we think more the things we "post" on Facebook for example, are we more concern of what we write? What are your thoughts on this?
