The New Reality
The digital self versus the social self, the scary amount of information that is readily available to the digital self that was not as readily available to our old social selves.
This has to be self governed if one wants to keep any form of sanity in the digital world. ‘The psychological reaction to such an overabundance of information and competing expert opinions is to simply avoid coming to conclusions’.
The good old days when one would find out new information away from the digital, sadly have gone, and to shut off completely from the digital to hopefully stay informed have gone. To keep the sanity we are living in a digital world where more than ever before we are over informed – if we let that happen. The necessity to sift through information before being inundated with the oversupply of sometimes dangerous information has to become a priority.
