Andy and Cat.

In this episode, Andy shares his thought about the value of being intentional in using social media. He talks about how the social media’s algorithm feeds us with suggestions that are sometimes counterproductive and how consuming those harms us over the long term.

 

Learning to be intentional about what you’re watching on social media will keep you from being fed information that is not helpful. Make sure to check out this episode.



Quotes:

“The Issue I Have With It Is That It's [Social Media] Telling Us What We Should Watch. And It's Telling Us, And In Many Cases, How We Should Behave.”

“We Have To Be Very Intentional About What We Choose.”

“When We Look At Things, We Have To Ask Ourselves, Is This Serving Us? Is This Just A Time Killer? Or Is It Something That Is Actually Going To Harm Us?”

“Small Doses Of Counterproductive Information Harms Us, It Harms Us Over The Long Term.”

“Be Very Careful About What It Is That You Look For, Where You Spend Your Time. And What You Scan For When You're Using Social Media.”
