Do power couples really need to be on social media or should take their relationship below the radar?
There is now a focus on power couples in entertainment and their use of social media. Within the last decade or so power couples in the entertainment business have used social media- Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to give their fans more than a peek into their lives.
In doing so they give millions of people access into their private world. The good thing about this is that their fans have a feel of intimacy with them. The downside is that when a power couple reveals too much online it can cause a lot of damage to their relationships.
We all witnessed when Tee Billz and Tiwa Savage came out as a couple. We saw when Tee Billz proposed to her. We saw photos of their wedding in Dubai and other cool moments of their marriage. That was when the going was good.
When the going was bad we had a front row seat to the meltdown. Tee Billz’s suicidal messages, and his ugly accusations on Instagram. If you flaunt the good times on social media then it only makes sense for you to show the ugly parts too, well according to some.
Just imagine for a second that Tee Billz and Tiwa Savage didn’t live their marriage on social media. Surely we wouldn't have been privy to the nasty details of their marriage. By extension if it is not on social media then it doesn’t exist.
Using the example of Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz it can be said that power couples should be careful about what they share on their social media accounts. Too much information on a social media platform can lead to scrutiny from the public and the media.
Marriages will always have problems but when you put your private issues out there on social media it becomes magnified and things unravel faster than you wished for.
Jay Z and Beyonce are the perfect examples of a power couple who knows how to handle social media. Beyonce and Jay Z rarely tweet. Beyonce uses Instagram regularly but she does not even have the time to caption her photos. They don’t reveal much about their private lives.
When the infamous elevator incident happened in 2014, Beyonce and Jay Z did not go ranting about it on social media. They ignored all the noise on social media and focused on repairing their marriage. Today they are better for it. Some other power couples would have been sending cryptic messages and lashing out online. This is not the way to go.
Power couples have to realize that their relationship is sacred and it should not be sacrificed for likes and retweets. If their relationship is of the highest priority to them then social media is not the place to show off their love.
