"…It's all right, we tell ourselves we are simply playing to the Gallery. But can we lose a sense of self in the process, or is it too farfetched to think that social media can help us spin distorted versions of ourselves? I'm sharing a related article here and I'm waiting to hear from you on this. Have a great day and.…"

"…But then I consider some platforms to be professional, and it's strange that businesses can look into your information. I try to keep all my stuff private, but like on LinkedIn. Obviously, I had to remind myself when I first got on LinkedIn, I was like, this is a business site I can't come on and rent about capitalism.

"…Rachel, the metamorphosis of social media into a marketing tool from platforms that are essentially about community building, as you put it, has been a huge leap, definitely.
