Why Has Social Media Become So Toxic?

It is anything that’s making the platform more money! And it has taken away from the user experience of genuine connection, which is why we find ourselves using social media . Way too many studies have already proved that commoditizing social status through comments and likes is harmful to your mental health.

Research also shows that people who use social media actively — by sending messages, leaving comments or talking in group chats, for example — report being happier than those who simply scroll through their feeds, absorbing news stories and viral videos. Netflix binges and YouTube rabbit holes are fine for escapism, but if you’re looking to find solace on the internet, lurking alone won’t cut it — you need to contribute. What’s your thoughts?
