Begging Question: What’s your take on PDA on social media?

Public display of affection or PDA on social media, as it is called, is the act of indulging in intimacy publicly – by kissing, holding hands, hugging, or playing “footsie” beneath the table. These are mostly done physically, but with the age of social media, we’ve seen couples who publicly display their love lives on social media platforms.

PDA on social media is done by posting each other’s pictures, quoting and commenting on each other’s posts romantically, sharing details of the relationship online, or going as far as sharing sensual photos online. While some people think that private things should be kept private, others say that sharing that part of your life online isn’t bad.

Some people share Tolu’s point of view, while some think it’s unnecessary.

If both parties are comfortable with it, then they should show their love publicly. If e spoil, e spoil, and we move (if it goes wrong, we move to the next available person).

  1. As with most things, it boils down to moderation. As long as people are happy sharing that part of their lives, and it hurts no one, then no issues. Just remember to update us when you breakup… not secretly delete pics.

    For more, not a big fan. Can share some notable activities or events but not steady bombardment of PDA.

  2. If you’re going to do it, do it. Nobody should matter, tbh. Just set your boundaries with your partner and that’s it.

    As for my personal life, I’m neither here nor there. If e enter body, I post. Nobody can come and fight me, abi?

  3. B the kid says:

    Sha tell us if e burst. E no concern us o, but the update will save you unnecessary embarrassing questions like, “what of madam?” or “what of oga?”

    Imagine everybody knows your boo on SM and it ends, and they see you simping in another girl’s comment section. Looool that’s why you gats tell us.

    With the above points, I hope I’ve been able to convince you that it is risky territory and that only those with mind can dive into that shark-infested ocean.
