E49: FOMO

Have a listen to the newest episode of Best Forevers here.

 Social media helps us make friends and maintain friendships, right? If that’s the case, then why do we also feel bad about ourselves, our friendships, and our lives while scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter? In this episode, Alysa explores the impact of social media on our friendships, both in positive and negative consequences. We don’t need to go delete our accounts, but maybe we should consider how social media makes us and others feel.
