I think it's about coming to terms with the power it gives us and dealing with the ramifications. With power comes responsibility. There's just a general sense that it's hard to remember that what's baked into the systems we're using with social media is that we're rewarded for exaggerating how we feel.
You are rewarded for being entertaining. At some level we're all encouraged to be entertainers, and with that comes a certain degree of inauthenticity. That feels like it's affecting the moment. I don't know how to change that, but it feels like we should be aware of that. And you also have algorithms feeding you stories of things that you want to hear, so people are just retreating into echo chambers and screaming, and it cannot be like that.
