Although I live in one small country in Europe- Croatia, I spend most of my spare time reading American blogs.
I rarely read Croatian newspapers or, for the matter of fact, any newspapers, because I think they only offer biased information to their readership.
As a result, in their writing we can often read about irrelevant celebrities, corrupted politicians or overly simplified scientific findings. For example: the other day I was looking for an information about anorexic girls, so I, just for fun, opened an article on one of the Croatia´s leading news portals where I read that the unlucky anorexic girl was cured because she got fat. How simple, huh?
Same type of news is perpetually presented- the stats about emigration, unemployment and crimes. In other words we only hear negative news which can make us think that the world we live in is much unsafer than it really is.
I am also part of the Millennial generation and hence, belong to the group of young adults whose life was quite affected with social media.
We literally used to spend couple of hours per day scrolling through Facebook newsfeed and by stalking our acquaintances.
Today it is even worse, if you don´t have Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, just to name a few- in a social media sense- you don´t even exist.
In a way it is good to have so many social media outlets if you use them to share quality ideas with others, but mostly, people share material which doesn´t help anyone.
If you just serve as a consumer of other people´s opinion you will never have your own voice and personality.
In a conclusion, today, if you want to read quality- you have to start sharing quality.
