Is social media about boasting or sharing for most people? Is it obsessional? It feels compulsive to me. It feels like an easy way to be heard without giving back. That certainly feels like an empty way to connect. So perhaps it’s nothing to do with connection but branding - on a personal level for us and commercial level for businesses. Social media is not nothing. It can definitely be an addiction if you let it. It is a good way to detach from the IRL present. And the feels. And the work at hand. Hmmmm, I might need a better strategy to use my voice as part of the collective.
