Your news feed isn’t the world

It’s easy to think that what you are seeing thanks to Facebook’s algorithm makes up the general opinion of the masses. Some of us actively or even passively curate our feeds and Facebook learns from this behaviour and gives you content more suited to your tastes and opinions. This has created echo chambers all across and plays a part in making people intolerant. I think it’s important to remember that people often try their hardest to show only the positives of their lives on social media. After all, that’s what gets incentivised by the likes and comments. I’ve also seen people be super quick to judge just based on someone’s social media profile. And time and time again, I’ve been proven wrong by getting to know the person better. Not everyone’s social media literacy is the same and a little empathy goes a long way and comes back around.
