Social Media and Loneliness

This video is quite profound:

Does this mean that social media is a bad thing? Not necessarily. You see, social media is a tool. And just like any other tool, if it’s used correctly, it can be very beneficial and build up society. But if it’s used incorrectly, it can be an amazing tool.

I think it’s time that we re-evaluated our views on social media. Instead of viewing it as a separate world, what if we viewed it as part of the real world, and then treated it as such? I’ll be examining this concept in future blog posts. But for now, I challenge you to think about your use of social media. If you don’t already, start treating your interactions on social media like you treat real-world interactions. A new perspective could cure our society’s issue of loneliness.
