Every social media participant should ask themselves one very real question about how SM effects their lives. That question is: over the history of your social media use do you think you have a net gain in the total number of people in your sphere or have you had a net loss in the total number of people you consider friends?

For me it’s net loss. For sure I have had relationships permanently damaged beyond repair on SM. Is that the fault of SM? Not really but SM has been the vehicle.
