For the last few weeks I’ve been thinking about something I noticed a couple of years ago when I traveled the world.
In this trip, it surprised me that a lot of people were traveling alone. But also, my psychology training told me that the ones who used social media all the time showed symptoms of depression. But it turned out that it wasn’t just about people who were traveling alone, but also people on groups.
I know, there are several studies that link depression with the use of social media, but I knew there was something bigger than that.
I believe social media platforms are tweaking our perception of reality and shaping our identities without we even notice it.
I wrote an entire article about this. If you can find the time to read it and share your thoughts here, it would mean the world to me.
