A Social Dilemma
I feel I've been slowly working towards this the last couple of years but watching #TheSocialDilemma really reinforced and justified some things for me, so I'm putting it into action:
I've turned off all social media notifications from my phone.
I have been & will continue to educate myself from unbiased news sources.
I'm working on taking a deeper look into social media platforms to see how much data is being collected on me & how many unknown people/sources I am "following" that provide manipulating information.
I'm still here! I will continue to check-in with the world, but it's time I say "goodbye" to a majority of social media platforms whose business models aim to entrance us. I don't want to live my life seeking social validation while being exposed to misinformation and divisive content.
In 2020, we've seen a massive increase in virtual communication. Please know this post doesn't mean I aim to disconnect from you! It's time for me to focus on creating more meaningful interactions (write/text, call, email, video chat) rather than scroll news feeds and communicate with others on platforms overflowing with the above mentioned content.
I look forward to connecting in a more meaningful way with you soon.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
