I'm guessing social media is here to stay, because it's an extension of our social selves. And sociality is key to humanity, no?
Yes, sometimes it's a lot like wading through murky and questionable waters, but think of all the treasures it affords!
Much of my social media consists of other people's work - other photographers and artists whom I admire & subscribe to. It fills my Facebook wall, my Instagram feed, and... that's pretty much it.
But the point is, you can curate your own online experience, to a point. You can seek out those morsels of meaning & beauty, right?
So Happy Social Media day! Don't live with a box over your head. Embrace and use it for some good!
