Think About It Thursday VLOG:
Voices in Social Media This Week:
- Golden State Warriors owner and former Facebook exec, Chamath Palihapitiya makes critical statements about how social media is “ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”
- #StandWithKeaton trending on social media after middle-schooler’s mother shares his tearful rant on bullies
- Twittersphere and other social networks pile cyber-bullying onto Keaton and family. One person even starts GoFundMe to capitalize on the viral video.
My hot take: Screen time is eating away at family time. It’s a reflection of our fear of intimacy and transparency. You can be anyone you choose when you create a parody account or catfish account. All the while we become less authentic, less human…and lose the true connections we have/had with society. So, yeah…Chamath is onto something.
