Sun signs are a fun way to look at our personality and quirks. Even if we don’t believe in them, the characteristics of each zodiac sign sometimes reveal telling things about us. In the spirit of it telling us more about ourselves, we looked into the connection between sun signs and social media, and listed out the social networking platform that you’d be, based on your sun sign.
As Hi5, you’re all about the bright fuchsia against black background, Aries, which means you go loud or you go home. Not to mention, being the first sign of the zodiac, you’re the OG among Indian millennials in terms of social networking sites.
Kind of stuffy and boring, WhatsApp is nevertheless very useful and reliable – much like Taurus. You’re like that one thrifty, low-maintenance friend who is very dependable, and will help you get stuff done when you need help, much like WhatsApp.
Twitter is for the glib and witty, who can say a lot in a few words. There is no better match for that in the zodiac than Gemini. These clever people always have a well-chosen word or two, and make for great writers and amateur poets. The world of Twitter is their kind!
This is the most obvious one. The moody Cancerian loves penning poetry on Tumblr, along with aesthetic pictures of their cat, taken with one of their many polaroid cameras. They live to make funny and sad gifs on the site. In fact, Tumblr IS a Cancerian in web-platform form.
The golden days of Orkut might no longer exist, but if it did, that is where Leos would be all the time. This sign loves attention and public admiration. They loved getting “testimonials” on their profile page, and probably pretended to be emo in their profile picture for added dramatic effect.
Facebook is where everyone writes down everything about themselves, from the school they went to, to how their ex broke their heart in 2011. Considering how obsessive, detail-oriented and analytical (okay, nosy) Virgos are, Facebook is their kind of social media platform.
Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, so they are all about flirting, indulging their vanity, and romancing the opposite sex. For them, seeking a partner is the most thrilling thing of all. That is why social media that presents dating options is their platform of choice.
Nobody tells anyone they use Kik, because “send nudes” isn’t exactly a conversation you want to have with people you know. Scorpio is like that – everyone’s dirty little secret, and almost always involved in something sex-related. *sigh*
Sagittarius is all about those no-strings attached flings. They are all about seeing you for a second, having fun with that, and then going about their life. They don’t want to date you, they just like some raunchy fun. All these things make Snapchat THEIR platform.
Capricorns treat all social networking sites like they are LinkedIn, “professional” and disciplined that they are. This sign is all about shop talk and suits and ties. What better fit for them than a site where you look for jobs and do some professional networking? *yawn*
Aquarius: Yahoo! Messenger
Aquarius and Yahoo! Messenger are a match made in heaven simply because both exist in their own world. Plus, Aquarius loves channelling their creative spirit by making a new messenger avatar every day. Not only that, this messenger is known for being that place where you communicate with friends, and Aquarius is all about friendship.
It is unsurprising that Pisces, a sign that loves seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses, is the sun sign match for the filter-centre of social media. From gloomy faded pictures of rain to intense sunsets, all the clichés that Instagram is famous for are what the average Piscean’s camera roll is full of.
