Very seldom do we have the courage to place ourselves under the microscope for inspection

Keywords: culture, psychology

As humans we need to get better at our relationship with social media. It’s far too jejune to blame social media for how we behave. To do so would be to forfeit any free will & strip ourselves of agency. Instead of just having a singular spotlight on the responsibility of social media, why not rig up another spotlight and shine it on our own responsibility to be aware of how we behave & how it can be manipulated? No intelligent algorithm can work its magic without you taking first action, and continuing to take further action. Your attention can’t be monetised unless you wilfully give it up. We are the start point, but we are also the end point.
