Mariam Sobh discusses how social media has changed how we think about modesty
40 plays

morningamp:

The Morning AMp’s Lead Modesty Analyst Mariam Sobh joined Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to report on how selfies and sharing of social media have changed norms about how we think and talk about modesty.

Mariam also discussed her opinions on people “over sharing” on social media. She went on to say:

"People share too much about their relationships - I feel like it can have a negative effect. Its always like ‘oh my gosh, my significant other is so amazing, oh thank you for bringing this to me today. I can’t believe you brought me flowers.’ Its just so in-depth. And then the next week, ‘oh we’re getting separated.’ Maybe you did a little too much or maybe you’re over compensating for something else in your life and you want everyone else to think its amazing."
