For me media is not Instagram or Twitter or Snapchat, it´s the people on these platforms. I like the possibilities it holds within; for my sake or for others. I would lie if I said that I don´t love my media. The videos I watch, the people I see, the music I listen to. However, what we tend to forget as a society is that these artifacts hold so much power and it makes it so much easier for people to use or abuse their power on the Internet.
Our Media is every-where and we practically live with it whether we want to or not. So, what we see on a daily basis on our feeds goes into our mind and heart. Now depending on what you see and how it makes you feel, you can let it lift you up or push you down. We should never forget that all of these images hold a subliminal message for us that can make us subconsciously believe certain things.
But only when you let that power take over, that’s when you probably should stop and take a step back from it.
