Social media can help to rally support, to organize demonstrations. As a mode to convey and discuss messages, I am not positive about social media, since it puts the individual central: “What’s in it for me?.. Will people LIKE ME for what I am, represent and all material pleasures and possessions I just posted on Facebook or Instagram?” Just behold medium.com — meant for intelligent people to interact. The reality is that authors here are mainly one-directional, and that interactions and discussions are rare. Most ‘readers’ do a quick clap, rather than discuss stuff, authors ditto.
