Yes, as per previous post, a lot of aspects of social media are like junk food. Superficial feel-goods, without much deep nourishment to the soul.
But is that always the case?
Is that the only side of the coin?
I feel connected to people with similar interests and passions to mine who I’ve found on various social media platforms.
It gives me a feeling that I am not alone. That I am part of a community.
That I am part of a movement (see post from earlier this week).
It’s an empowered feeling. An interconnectedness.
Really, all of us in this world are connected, on a metaphysical level.
So, when social media brings people together who are otherwise geographically separated—
well, that’s pretty awesome.
