Closing Moments, this idea has been in my mind for a long time.
The only reason that keeps me using it is to interact with a few good friends, because they truly live up to the meaning of "Moments" - sharing their daily lives, thoughts, and insights. It's a good way for friends to understand each other, and if there are common topics, we can even have in-depth discussions.
However, what makes me pessimistic is that there are mainly two types of people in the Moments I observe. One type is focused on sharing, while the other type is focused on managing1, and there seems to be a growing trend of the latter.
The practice of using Moments as a personal branding tool is the most annoying, as it has almost no value to others. Their obvious characteristics are: using props such as luxury items, rare items, etc.; using location tags such as landmark shopping areas, company office buildings, etc.; and directly posting advertisements.
Selling advertisements is straightforward, and I'm used to blocking them. What I can't stand the most is those people who tirelessly show off by displaying material possessions to satisfy their own vanity. I've seen an exaggerated example from a friend I had dinner with some time ago. He complained to me about this type of people in his Moments, and one of them is a hotel worker who constantly posts pictures of luxury hotels, yachts, handsome men, beautiful women, and other extravagant lifestyles. However, behind those beautiful photos, he is just working in a job similar to sales...
Moments are not yet at the point of being closed, but we can choose to see less, as they say, "out of sight, out of mind." At the same time, we can also choose to post less to avoid causing annoyance to others.
PS. In the program "Mr. Moments EP3 | Wang Kai: Closing Moments," I agree with some of Wang Kai's viewpoints.
Managing: What do these people think Moments is, a shopping mall? ↩
