I use social media every day, and yet I realise that I don’t actually post all that much to it myself. As sites like Twitter have matured and gotten away from what they were when they first started out, I kind find myself much less inclined to wade into that perpetual trash fire. I just feel bad for the people who have to interact with it as a part of their livelihood.
I’ve found myself getting more and more frustrated using social media of late. Twitter, Instagram and I’ve all but stopped using Facebook completely. The services all seem to do more harm than good when it comes to their original intended purpose these days.
Outside of contacting people you actually know in real life. The platforms seem to be little more than people making hot (irony much) takes, daring anyone to question them, and when they do it turns into a venomous debate over said subject. Which might be the most pointless activity known to mankind.
