Social Media Distancing
“Social Distancing” has become the recommended way of fighting a dangerous virus. This is, however, not the only virus which is dangerous and threatening us. It might be a good idea to start practising also, “Social Media Distancing”. Think for a moment of this interesting paradox that you can use Facebook to warn of Facebook’s inherent dangers and to persuade people to get out of it. Perhaps one has to use the help of Facebook to work on making it obsolete. Facebook for many has become the web and this is the biggest misconception. If you want to use the web, you do not have to use Facebook. (There will be withdrawal symptoms, but, like with “social distancing”, there will be enormous benefits.) Rest assured many very intelligent people are working on the use of the web which is not identical to the use of Facebook. “Social Media Distancing” can lead the way.
