There’s a lot of talk about social media these days. Many of us are conflicted about using the various platforms and I have many discussions with friends who have similar concerns which I find helpful and I think should be ongoing.
Then there are those users who deem themselves above certain platforms and see users of other platforms as inferior or silly. Those who don’t use it at all of course can be the most irritatingly smug. Finally there are those who use social media to criticise social media and its users. So. Tedious.
For me, having a hearing impairment, social media is an absolute godsend. It connects me in a way I could never be connected in an earlier era so I feel sort of odd when friends criticise the use of social media outright because it seems they saying I am a cretin for using it. What should someone like me do?Power down and stare at the wall?What about people who are isolated in other ways?I won’t go into other pros and cons here enough to say whether you like it or hate it just use it or don’t use it and move on. Simples.
