In this age of social media where people love sharing every minute of their lives, we consistently come across stuff like this:
I am bored with every game I have. #firstworldproblems

Last year, Water is Life launched the “First World Problems Anthem” video depicting Haitian children and adults reading posts on Twitter with the popular #FirstWorldProblems hashtag. For some odd reason, the video is starting to make its rounds again (oh internet…).
The point of the video is to spread awareness of the lack of clean water in third world countries. And that the so called “problems” many of us complain about to the world are not really problems at all.
It’s all about perspectives, isn’t it?
