Where Is Social Media Taking Us?

There are so many times I think to myself “I don’t get it”. We’ve all seen it happen. Maybe there is a story on the news or a commentator says something that seems totally harmless or even uninteresting at the time. Then it makes the social media rounds and explodes into something else. Videos go viral, memes are created and shared, people feel the need to share their opinion. Something is either the “funniest thing I’ve ever seen”, “OMG I can’t stop laughing”, or worse yet something becomes political, racist, intolerant, or hurtful.

So I wonder where social media is taking us. Maybe it’s simply OK stop and get away from all the noise that is social media. Maybe we would all benefit from unplugging once in a while.
