Media Satirises

I love my media because it poses a paradox which I believe will define our generation in the future. We have unlimited knowledge at our fingertips – and utilise only a fraction of it. We endlessly engage in social media platforms that were designed to help us connect with each other – only to find us isolating ourselves behind a screen in social situations. We aspire to make friends with interesting people, but the only profiles we’re really interested in – both online and in reality – are our own. I love my media because it is so good at holding up its mirror to our faces only to point out how foolishly we behave.
