Keeping tabs on social media use is now something all responsible people must do. Naturally we think that most of the problems generated by Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, come from the original poster. Sometimes that is correct. However with the omnipotence of technology and its accompanying social media, savvy users have to be equally careful simply as onlookers.
In this episode Phil and Jon discuss the proliferation of several social media platforms and the benefits they offer. Likewise we dive into the worm hole of exactly what can go wrong when social media use goes awry. We cover issues like: bad posting etiquette, problems arising from overconsumption, loss of productivity, addiction, and anxiety resulting from social media overexposure. We then discuss proven, practical ways to loosen the grip of social media and get you back on the road to productivity.
We also talk about our recent inclusion in Drum Magazine’s top drumming podcast’s list. We are humbled and honored to be listed with such wonderful people and podcasts. If you would like to see what was said about us click this link.
