It’s time to change the conversation about social media

In my opinion, all kids and teenagers should grow up without [social media] but it’s impossible to control. At least make sure you set time for yourself without any distraction, ban your phone when you eat and when you’re spending time with someone in real life for example (even if it happens less often nowadays).

I can tell you that Facebook’s memo is essentially adding to the fog of misinformation

They know that the media is desperate to fill its space, so their counterpoints will get attention and will help create an alternate reality.

The film’s creators do not include insights from those currently working at the companies or any experts that take a different view to the narrative put forward by the film

They also don’t acknowledge—critically or otherwise—the efforts already taken by companies to address many of the issues they raise. Instead, they rely on commentary from those who haven’t been on the inside for many years.

Instead of putting a lot of significance on material things, perhaps you can divert that energy towards people and relationships that matter

My two most often questions when buying are 1.) where do I put this in the house, and 2.) will I use this? That’s why we don’t usually have “special occasion items” at home (except, of course, Christmas decorations). Keyword is “usually”, because we’re not perfect either, but we try our best.

Disinformation acts as an ever-evolving tool that can be used to help change or expedite how the public interprets individuals, policies, or other general categories of opinion

Though President Trump has been exceptionally vocal about the negative effects of fake news, even going as far as to publicly accuse several news outlets of participating in the activity, there are many who believe his campaign is using fake news accounts as a tactic to get him ahead in the election race. For example, several prominent news outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times have claimed that President Trump’s campaign is built on disinformation.

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should live their lives, but none about their own

This feels for me like one of the huge issues around social media. People use social media platforms to lecture others on the right way to be. The right thoughts, beliefs, routines, habits, political affiliations, diet, way to be in relationship, way to support their cause… the list is endless. And if you dare disagree, you are at best un-liked and at worst, personally attacked.

Family is created not born. My friends reached out to check in on me. That is family. Having my back, listening and telling me what they think. I have some family members that don’t do that. Shown their true colors. But that’s a story for another time. It’s been a week. I have been ignoring him. Not talking unless spoken too. I will be civil. But I will not forgive you. Even if he apologizes. I am done. I do not condone violence. He walks as if he did the right thing. Bitch, just give me my money so I don’t have to deal with you. Acting like the alpha, when he does zip. Nada. Clean the house, nah, wash the dishes, laundry, make dinner. Nope. “That’s a woman’s job,” he says.

Peace, love, raise the rent

I have things taking up space, space it no longer deserves in my home, in my heart, and in my mind. I was discussing this very same thing this past week with my friend whose work environment has become toxic. I urged him to pull the chord and walk so he would make space for positive changes. The advice I gave him of course was not immediately apparent to myself. This is why when something is taking up space which no longer serves you, you need to cut ties and move the fuck on. Because to think you will be able to explore opportunities to the fullest extent of the Universe while that space is completely full of crap is unrealistic; you are literally cock blocking yourself.
