Writer’s Note: In writing this blog, I do not contend that I am portraying a balanced picture of the impact of social media on our lives. Oftentimes, social media is changing us in ways we do not see. After all, the eye of the storm is calm. My focus is on the negative because the social fabric of our society is getting weaker as a result of social media being misused. As our society becomes increasingly polarized, it is, in my opinion, important to understand the role of social media in subconsciously polarizing and radicalizing us.
