    [Social Media] It’s Not OK
    Unfortunately, most people will never take accountability for how their words have changed due to social media. A cloud hangs over Manhattan. forthcoming Columbia University and University of Pittsburgh study shows that surfing on Facebook with close friends lowers inhibitions towards self control. The study says that with an inflated positive self caused by ego-stroking on Facebook we feel more inclined to take license. So know we know the medium is toxic. Does that give us license to behave poorly? That’s true. What do I mean by that? License to Snark? Image by hyku.
