Using social media is like swimming around in a pool of information, images, and opinions.
It’s like constantly being a finger tap away from a bombardment of verbal vomit in the form of tiny black letters.
Its like walking through a dark cave with throwaway whispers floating past you, echoing off the seemingly nonexistent walls.
Our buzzing devices direct our attention away from our surroundings and funnel our focus on a retweet, a new follower, this alert, that alert.
Are we enlightened in our pursuit of truth and meaning through community and connection, or are we dazed and unaware in a cycle of instant gratification?
Perhaps we’re a bit of both.
