TagLast edit: 13 Dec 2020 17:25 UTC by [Error communicating with LW2 server]

Social media are digital tools that let users share content with many others, quickly and easily. Prominent examples include Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and many others.

Social media is infamous for its tendency to polarize users, make them spend more time and attention than they intended, and otherwise hurt productivity.
