Hidden cost

Let’s talk about social media.

There is no doubt that social media has revolutionised the world. It has enabled millions to better run their businesses and billions to connect.

But at what cost?

Since the dawn of farming some 20,000 years ago we’ve seen a number of huge shifts in the way we live. Social Media is perhaps the latest.

For all this invention and innovation, are we better off?

Maybe not.

There has been extensive research in the last century on the native tribes that are still found dotted in quiet corners of the globe.

The research offers a valuable insight into the lives of the hunter gather- our lives, before it all changed.

The findings are truly remarkable.

They are happier, healthy and get far more joy out of life than their more “advanced” relatives.

And not just marginally!

It’s a landslide.

Farming. Social Media. The internet even. These all seem like great ideas.

Sure, there are clear benefits.

But at what cost?

Just because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should.
