The award-winning actress made this known via her Instagram stories on Wednesday 19, 2020. According to her, a lot of people believe social media has become the yardstick to measure wealth.

"So social media has become the yardstick to measure wealth? Lol. Some people think because you don't post certain things like designer labels, holidays, how much you have, etc on your means you are not balling? Wow. Poverty mentality much? Happiness or balling in your word means different things to different people. This life isn't that serious, be happy you are alive and healthy first and foremost #Selah," she wrote.

While Rita Dominic is stunned at the yardstick used in measuring wealth on social media by some people, some celebs have advised fans not to get carried away with the glitz and glamour on social media.

A few weeks ago, Tonto Dikeh in a similar vein had advised fans to not be influenced by the lifestyle they see on social media.

The actress made this known via her Instagram page on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. According to her, people should not be deceived into thinking it’s that easy as it looks on social media.

Other celebrities like Joke Silva and Funke Akindele have at one time or the other shared the same sentiment about the misconception a lot of people have about the lifestyle they see on and off social media.
