Shy Social
Jessie Borsellino

This is a really important read. In the world of likes and retweets I think we really need to reinforce the fact that approval is not everything. Getting other people’s validity for the things you think or feel and which you then post is not required for using social media. Like you said, “Social media is a tool for you to talk about issues that matter to you.” Or maybe it’s a tool just for you to share funny memes that make you laugh. Chances are, it will probably make someone else laugh too. Maybe they won’t push the “like” button, but that’s not the end of the world. The point was just to share something with your network because you felt like it. That’s all that matters. Thanks for this reassurance :)
