On Social Media and Approval

Social media is a largely context-less environment.  That is, people give life updates to others who have a marginal knowledge of what’s actually going on in their lives.  The danger in this is that we “like” or give approval to statements without understanding what prompted the statement to begin with.  Consequently we can unwittingly encourage our “friends” in behavior and beliefs that we otherwise would not if we were present in their lives.
