The problem with blaming social media

We blame social media for many of our problems today, and for good reason.

Except…

Except, we have been on this path for a long time.

Bullying predates cyber bullying.

Narcissism and vanity have been around a lot longer than selfies.

The internet and social media haven’t created these problems, it has amplified them.

When talking about social media as the culprit, we have to be really clear what it is we are actually talking about.

Social media is a symptom not the root cause of the challenges we face.
