Why people share content on social media. Answering this why seems a little redundant, even crazy to answer seeing how you’ll have to get into a little psychology with it. But, here I will try, and also try and help you understand how to use the ways people share content on social platforms to your advantage.

Scrolling through our social media feeds feels like a harmless part of our daily lives. But is it actually as harmless at seems?

How can you create a more positive experience online? Bailey covers this and more in “Is Social Media Hurting Your Mental Health?”
