Five things that worry me about social media
 

  • After being a huge proponent of social media early on, I now worried we are too absorbed by the medium.
  • I worry that we care more about taking a good photo for Instagram than we do about being in the moment.
  • I worry we care more about what other people think about how our life looks than we care about how our life feels.
  • I worry our views on beauty are being warped beyond all recognition.
  • And I worry we are getting too polarised by people stating opinion and ‘facts’ on social media and in the process that we are losing the art of openness, inquiry and discourse.
