Dear Social Media

We often blame technology for a lot of the problems faced in society, such as cyber bullying, vanity, insecurity. However I like to argue that the fault lies in the mentality that people adopt when they are using technology. So rather than addressing individuals I decided to address social media as an entire entity with a collective identity. I hope looking at it from this perspective, people who adopt negative personas when using social media, will acknowledge the implications their actions may have on the people on “the other side of the screen”. Ultimately if the technology is stripped away, we are still mere humans beings with feelings.
