Here are 5 Things We Can Each Do To Make Social Media And The Internet A Kinder And More Tolerant Place
#1: Your Feed Reflects You — Consider taking action if your feed is filled with anger, fights, and negativity. On Facebook, for example, you can unfollow a person or a page that focuses negativity. Also, realize that algorithms of social platforms learn from you because you’ve taught them what you want to see and who you wish to engage with — from here on out post and comment to promote kindness. Do this and see what happens to your feed after just a few weeks. It’s a game changer!
#2: Your Click Matters — when you click on a link you give it power and help spread it. Before you click on the link, think. Ask yourself, “is this something that reflects what I feel is worthy of my time and respectful of the person or situation on the other end?”
#3: Be a Cheerleader — give compliments, provide good reviews, shout out to people doing loving work, build up the people and organizations that deserve it.
#4: Look Inside — this is big. If you leave your social media feed feeling drained or depressed, take notice of that feeling. If you continue worrying about a post long after you’ve put down your phone, that may be a sign that something is wrong. If you’re compelled to respond with anger, insults, or a condescending attitude, then you need to look inside! Such negativity is often a subconscious response and may stem from unhealed wounds. Recognizing this creates a wonderful opportunity for healing and growth. Find a trustworthy professional to help you find what’s hurt, heal it and become love.
