Are Social Media Algorithms Gaslighting Us? - Solo Episode

Episode 8,   Mar 29, 2022, 09:22 AM

In this episode we’re diving into the concept of social media algorithms and their effect on mental health. As content creators, it’s easy to equate your self-worth to social media engagement. With the ever-changing algorithms on Tikok and Instagram, a psychological element is added. We have no ability to control who sees what we create, the machines decide. We unpack the dangers of social media algorithms, how social media too similarly reflects toxic human behavior, and the addiction to success. 

We also discuss:
  • How the algorithm “breadcrumbs” its users
  • Social media’s effect on self image and self confidence 
  • The algorithm’s effect on business and creativity 
  • How to set boundaries and not let social media consume you
