Social media keeps us connected with friends and family who live faraway. I use social media to promote my books and meet readers. But there’s also a darker side of social media. We’ve seen people bullying others, comparing their lives to others and even making fun of groups of people. When I see the mean, I have to say something, but my I often think of getting off social media altogether. Things seem better lately or maybe I have deleted those who don’t represent what I believe. I feel that it’s better to lift people up than tear them down. As I was taught as a child, if I can’t say anything nice, I keep my mouth shut.
How do you use social media? What do you think about the way people treat each other online? Have you thought about deleting your apps?
