Social media has dominated the narrative of our time. We have all bought in. Some take thousands of selfies every day to get the perfect image. We live within the age of ‘I’ when we desperately need to be thinking about ‘our’; our children, our planet, our home…
We are lining the pockets of those which are upholding this dominant narrative. Mark Zuckerberg banks our desire to raise our profiles, shareholders get rich off our insecurity, and we play their game because for some reason we think we have to.
By why do we serve them, when online communities can be created relatively easily to challenge the narrative?
It would be really interesting to hear people’s views on why they maintain their connection with these social media forums.
Why would a sustainability or pressure group for instance host on facebook when they could on Better Century? They are after all lining the pockets of Mark Zuckerberg and his shareholders. The money made by them could go to good causes.
Or do you think people simply don’t think about it?
