Social media promised a more open and connected world, remember? They claimed to 💪 empower communities & bring us closer together 💑 no matter how wide the oceans between us. 🌎
Then came the attention economy. 👀 Addictive algorithms causing endless scrolling. Toxic behavior in overgrown public spaces. Influencers and celebrity worship. All just to make a buck. 💰
Rather than connection 💞 and community 🤗 we got isolation 😔 and outrage. 🤬
Family? Blocked! 🛑 Friends? Canceled! ☠️ Communities? Entrenched in culture wars. 💔
