I also agree with what Silverman has to say about social media. I think there are many instances in which people post things to the internet with ulterior motives. I do think there are instances in which a post gets recognition due to its authenticity as opposed to becoming less authentic because it was acknowledged by a larger number of people. I think having knowledge that one will be recognized for their post definitely encourages them to post more. I remember reading that something happens in our brains when our social media posts are acknowledged in a positive way and I think this can become somewhat addictive for many people. They continually seek that virtual acknowledgement.
