The Danger of Social Media

“The danger of Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and the rest is that they can seem at times to substitute for the real interactions essential to the human condition. Character is trivialised into personality, ‘likes’ take the place of genuine respect, and presentation of self takes the place of engagement with others. This can often seem more like narcissism than genuine personal growth.”
