Or, the next time you feel compelled to share a link on social media about current events, ask yourself why you are doing it. Is it because that link brings to light information you hadn’t considered? Or does it confirm your world view, reminding your circle of intellectual teammates that you’re not on the Other Side?
The “Other Side” Is Not Dumb.

This point is rather reductive. There are various reasons one may engage in social media and share information. An interesting story, a major event, something odd, something relevant to topics they discuss frequently; the last one doesn’t even need to involve opinion pieces. It can purely be for the dissemination of information. Sharing an unbiased Reuters report about slavery in Thailand doesn’t have to mean I’m either reinforcing my worldview nor discovering information about slavery in Thailand I didn’t know before.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
