Say No to Meaningless Content on Social Media


As part of my mission to help people live better, I’m increasingly active on social media, both posting and consuming more than ever before. In the overwhelming amount of content available, I’ve noticed that there are essentially two distinctive types: meaningful content and meaningless content.

And what I’ve seen is that the meaningless content – the kind that celebrates materialism, the sexual objectification of women, and shallow experiences, for example – gets far more engagement than content containing positive, substantive messages.

Before I sound like I’m the censorship or morality police, I’ll be the first to say that there is nothing wrong with caring about how we look, embracing sexuality, or having fun. But as I’ve said in other blogs, it’s important to recognize that we have the choice not to reinforce oppression, that we can be a part of making the world a better place, and in the process we can make our lives more fulfilling.

Watch this week’s video to find out why we should all say no to meaningless garbage on social media, and why what we consume matters.
