Speakout: Social media

Do you think social media divides and isolates people or does it help build community and communication?

I feel like historically it’s a tool that’s done both. It has globally made us more connected than ever. But the way the younger generation is using social media has made them isolated and more focused on their body issues and more about themselves instead of the bigger issues going on in the world.

I would say divide. There are just many things you can do [with social media] and not everyone agrees, or they might. It just divides people more than anything.
Evan Nelson, Junior
I think it brings people together. I think as we’re going its efficiency will be key. When you have effectively to communicate exactly what you’re thinking it brings people closer.
