Is it me or does it feel like social media–that great, wonderful tool that is supposed to bring us all together–is becoming more and more divisive?
Maybe it is me. Maybe I just don’t like people screaming their political beliefs at me (particularly when they don’t jibe with my own, hah ha), or trying to get me to “guilt share” some image or message or status. “Share this if you support…” with the implication being that I’m anti-American or anti-cop or anti-equality or anti-choice or anti-life or anti-feminist if I don’t do it. Don’t tell me what I am just because I didn’t change my profile picture to support your cause, or because I didn’t share a status or image or do the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Rant over. Damn, I’m feeling like some cranky old man. Here’s some depressing (but incredible) Pink Floyd to cap this post off a on a real cheery note!
