Sometimes I think Social Media Is The Worst Thing That Happened to Common Sense
I use Facebook and such as a brain drain sometimes and it’s been a great way to see what some people are up to that I grew up with. It really is frustrating and disappointing how many people just jump right on board with confirmation bias misinformation. The most ironic wave I’ve seen recently is people bitching about the lack of critical thinking while while spreading misinformation.
I used to think tiny soundbites taken out of context on cable news were the worst thing for society but social media is even worse than that. It seems as if the ability to look at the bigger picture or do any form of critical thinking has gone directly into the shitter.
