For as long as we maintain that we do not inhabit someone's mind, that we are not a dream, we need to come to terms with the fact (not the opinion) that there is no single "real" life. There are as many lives as individuals on the planet, and their lives are as “real” as ours. If some believe social media is reality - they find education, data, entertainment, friendship, a job, and even a life partner there - their reality is no lesser than yours or mine just because we attend a library, an opera theater, or a watering hole where to hook up. I do not gather my vegetables or hunt for my meat, but instead go to the supermarket to simply exchange money for them. Yet my life is no less "real" than that of my cave ancestors.
