For all the deepfakes and fake news – you got to love something like the glamorous grandmas of instagram. In the old world of media we would never have this. And for all the arguments that a secret cabal still controls the world – that may be true – but at least there is an opportunity for everyone to have a meta view of reality and to become exposed to a wide range of views, opinions, and ways of being.
Social media can either keep you in your bubble, in your reality tunnel, or it can expose you to a wider world. How do you find serendipity in social media? Its hard, people gravitate to those areas that they are interested in, and with people that share similar view points. Our only hope is that people develop a healthy curiosity around difference and follow those hashtags unclicked.
