We all love a good scroll, don’t we? Most of us find ourselves going down social media rabbit holes on the daily. It provides an easy way to relax and zone out from our stress, and with most companies and news portals also using these platforms it’s easy to find ourselves there, hopping from one page or handle to another. Love it or hate it, it’s become a huge part of our lives, and it brings with it connection, convenience and opportunity.
On the flip side of the coin, the platforms also bombard us with more content than we know what to do with. Whilst social media may be sold to us as a means of keeping in touch with those who are far away, it can also create a new kind of distance; that between the virtual world and reality, occasionally even creating barriers between yourself and your loved ones who are right beside you in the physical realm.
