Hitting ‘enter’ on social media does not create change. It provokes thought, but not change. Change happens when we transition from talking to doing. The great danger of social media is that it ‘teases’ us to make us think we are making a difference by hitting enter, while in reality it is distracting us from actually doing something about what we are writing about.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge advocate and active user of social media, and believe it has many positive uses…yet we cannot let it tease us into thinking we’ve done something by hitting enter.
