There is so much chaos in the world. Especially with our neighbours to the south. I know that a lot of people who have some influence in our world (whether its political, media, corporate etc) feel the need to use their platform to take a stand. I think when it comes to social media it’s a slippery slope. I love checking my feed to find inspiration and uplifting stories. But when those people I follow talk about something outside of their niche (or brand) I feel disconnected from them. I know what’s going (TV and newspapers) and when it’s particularly sad I just like to turn it off. Not because I am turning a blind eye but because I want to stay positive for myself and family.
Do you like seeing your favourite social media influencers taking a stand on political or social economic views? Does it make you feel alienated or can you relate to them more?
