Topics I’m Scared to Write about on My Blog and Social Media (And How We Can #ShareDifferent)



Why do you blog or spend time on Facebook? For most bloggers, they blog about things they are passionate about. The same thing can be said to people who spend time on Facebook or Twitter. They want to share things that they love with their friends.

But did you know that there are plenty of things that people don’t share on social media?

Mostly because they are afraid that they might be judged, ridiculed, or worse get fired. According to a study done by Pew Research, most of your friends on Facebook won’t share their opinion about a certain topic if they think it’s unpopular. This is a situation called spiral of silence.  People are afraid to speak up for fear of isolation.


It’s especially more difficult for bloggers. We have to be more careful of what we say. 

Some of the things I don’t talk about on my blog or social media are:
  • My thoughts on love teams and politics which I prefer to talk about it privately with my family and friends. 
  • Some family occasions.
  • Parenting style. 
  • Views on different issues.

The team behind the social app, Veems, has felt that many people share on social media but only topics that they think are safe or fit the status quo. While this is good, there are topics or questions in life that we must explore with other human beings. J The Internet and social media are supposed to be places where we can explore our ideas freely in the first place.

Here’s a video that perfectly captures the thoughts of people who would like to talk about some serious topics on social media:


If you’re an extrovert who have very strong opinions or an introvert who just love to ponder on the important questions in life, here’s why Veems is a good social app for you:

1. Share a public status privately. Just like on Facebook and Twitter, you can share what’s on your mind to your followers. But instead of just posting it on your timeline, the status is sent as a private message. It becomes more personal and you don’t have to comment, “will PM you” if you want to take the conversation privately. 


2. Because when someone replies to your message, only you will see it. This puts you in control of the conversation that you started.

3. Join public chat on Veems like the Anonymous. Iddo Goren, Veems CEO, started the Anonymous public chat to help people share their ideas and emotions more freely. There are topics and certain experiences that we go through daily that we just can’t share on Facebook. The Anonymous public chat is a sure hit--with almost 5 million messages sent in a given day. Users have talked about different topics from the struggles in school to sex, parenting, religion, and relationships.



Have you ever been scared on sharing your opinion on your social media?
