Number one: social media doesn't care about you.

They don't care about me or anyone else. They're not our friends. The companies that own the various platforms we love create these apps, which are full of features. On them, you can connect with your friends across the miles, across the globe, before too long, galactically because...

Social Media as a Jealous Lover social media Feb 11, 2021
