Our Thinking Is Changing
All this technology that we are using to broadcast our ideas has done something to our thinking:
If we have a verbal thought, we Tweet it. If we have a thought to show and tell, we YouTube it. If we have visual thoughts, we Instagram it. If we have thoughts that need to be share with Friends, we Facebook it. If we have thoughts that we need to share with randoms, we Reddit it. If we want to dance like everyone is watching, we TikTok it. If we want to throw some art to the world, we ArtStation it. And if we have slightly deeper thoughts, we blog about it somewhere.
In other words, these social media outlets have become extensions of our brains. (And there are many of them.)
If you step back and think about it, it’s kinda weird…and amazing.
