I used to think social media was a force for good. Now the evidence says I was wrong

I used to think social media was a force for good. Now the evidence says I was wrong
Matt Haig (By The Guardian - Opinion 06/09/2017)

I used to think social media was essentially a force for good, whether it was to initiate the Arab spring of 2011, or simply as a useful tool for bringing together like-minded people to share videos of ninja cats. Having spent a lot of time thinking about mental health, I even saw social media’s much-maligned potential for anonymity as a good thing, helping people to open up about problems when they might not feel able to do so in that physical space we still quaintly call real life.

I also knew from my own experience that it could sometimes provide a happy distraction from the evil twins of anxiety and depression. I have made friends online. As an author, it’s also been a great way to test new ideas, and has taken storytelling from its castle in the sky back down to the metaphorical (now hashtag-heavy) campfire. As someone who often finds social situations mentally exhausting, social media seemed far more solution than problem.
Yes, I would occasionally feel that maybe staring at my Twitter feed near-continuously for seven hours wasn’t that healthy, especially when I was arguing with an army of Trump fans telling me to jump off a cliff. Yes, I’d see articles warning of the dangers of excessive internet use, but I dismissed these as traditional, reactionary takes. I saw social media naysayers as the first reviewers of Technicolor movies, who felt the colour distracted from the story, or were like the people who walked out on Bob Dylan at Newport folk festival for playing an electric guitar, or like those who warned that radio or TV or video games or miniskirts, or hip-hop or selfies or fidget spinners or whatever, would lead to the end of civilisation.
I remember a Daily Mail headline, “How using Facebook could raise your risk of cancer”, which made things even clearer: to be anti-social media was to be hysterically on the wrong side of history.
Then I started the research for a book I am writing on how the external world affects our mental health. I wanted to acknowledge the downsides of social media, but to argue that far from being a force for ill,it offers a safe place where the insanities of life elsewhere can be processed and articulated.
But the deeper into the research I went, the harder it was to sustain this argument. Besides the Daily Mail screeching about the dangers, other people – scientists, psychologists, tech insiders and internet users themselves – were highlighting ways in which social media use was damaging health.
Even the internet activist and former Google employee Wael Ghonim – one of the initiators of the Arab spring and one-time poster boy for internet-inspired revolution – who once saw social media as a social cure – now saw it as a negative force. In his eyes it went from being a place for crowdsourcing and sharing, during the initial wave of demonstrations against the Egyptian regime, to a fractious battleground full of “echo chambers” and “hate speech”: “The same tool that united us to topple dictators eventually tore us apart.” Ghonim saw social media polarising people into angry opposing camps – army supporters and Islamists – leaving centrists such as himself stuck in the middle, powerless.
And this isn’t just politics. It’s health too. A survey conducted by the Royal Society of Public Health asked 1,500 young people to keep track of their moods while on the five most popular social media sites. Instagram and Snapchat came out worst, often inspiring feelings of inadequacy, anxiety and self-loathing. And according to another survey carried out by the youth charity Plan International UK, half of girls and two-fifths of boys have been the victims of online bullying.
The evidence is growing that social media can be a health risk, particularly for young people who now have all the normal pressures of youth (fitting in, looking good, being popular) being exploited by the multibillion-dollar companies that own the platforms they spend much of their lives on.
Kurt Vonnegut said: “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful who we pretend to be.” This seems especially true now we have reached a new stage of marketing where we are not just consumers, but also the thing consumed. If you have friends you only ever talk to on Facebook, your entire relationship with them is framed by commerce. When we willingly choose to become unpaid content providers, we commercialise ourselves. And we are encouraged to be obsessed with numbers (of followers, messages, comments, retweets, favourites), as if operating in a kind of friend economy, an emotional stock market where the stock is ourselves and where we are encouraged to weigh our worth against others.

Roda de Encontros traz Alexandre Le Voci para discutir participação dos pais na escola dos filhos

No dia 19 de Setembro a Livraria da Vila (Rua Fradique Coutinho, 915, Vila Madalena), em São Paulo, recebe o jornalista Alexandre Le Voci Sayad (foto) para conversar sobre a importância da participação dos pais na escola dos filhos e os limites dessa relação. O bate-papo, que tem como tema "A boa relação com a escola que você escolheu”, acontece das 12h às 14 e faz parte da Roda de Encontros da Matutaí.

Alexandre Le Voci Sayad é o segundo convidado do ciclo  de debates promovido pela Matutaí. Além de jornalista, ele é educador e membro do comitê GAPMil da Unesco. A partir de suas experiências em projetos com escolas, ONGs e governos, Alexandre estimulará reflexões sobre a escola como um polo cultural que envolva a comunidade e que possa ser um local onde o jovem possa aprender com interesse e entusiasmo.  

A ideia é mostrar diferentes perfis de escolas e propor caminhos para se estabelecer uma relação saudável entre os pais e as instituições de ensino, que envolva parceria e também olhar crítico e avaliação: “Qual o perfil da escola que escolhi para o meu filho? O que é ser um pai parceiro da escola? Até que ponto posso interferir na abordagem pedagógica da escola?”serão algumas questões abordadas.


A Roda de Encontros, que teve início no dia 29/8 com a psicanalista Vera Iaconelli, continua no mesmo local até dezembro, com um evento mensal, sempre às terças-feiras (abaixo, programação completa). O valor cobrado inclui almoço do Santo Grão para os participantes.

Roda de Encontros Matutaí: "A boa relação com a escola que você escolheu", com Alexandre Le Voci Sayad
DATA: 19/9/17, terça-feira
HORÁRIO: das 12h às 14h
LOCAL: Livraria da Vila - Rua Fradique Coutinho, 915 - Vila Madalena – São Paulo
VALORES: R$ 230 o encontro avulso e na compra do pacote com quatro encontros cada um sai por 
R$ 180 (para ambos, incluso almoço do Santo Grão)  



10/10: "O cultivo dos vínculos familiares"
Lucia Rosenberg
Psicóloga psicoterapeuta, palestrante do TEDx SP e professora na Casa do Saber. A conversa com a Lucia carrega cada um de nós de volta para casa, para o colo da mãe, para os almoços em família. Tem cheiro de bolo quente em dia de aniversário. O amor familiar, para ela, não nasce pronto. Ele cresce junto com as marcas e os marcos, os medos, os risos, as brigas e as conquistas que a gente cultiva todos os dias. Escutar a Lucia é arar o solo, é plantar a semente para que o vínculo cresça forte e possa criar raízes profundas, capaz de gerar os seus próprios frutos. 

7/11: "A luta diária de educar"
José Bueno
Arquiteto e urbanista, mestre em Aikido e convidado especial em projeto de formação de lideranças da Amana-Key por mais de 10 anos. O melhor papel de Bueno, segundo ele mesmo, é o de faixa preta em criar pontes. Com essa metáfora, ele promove suas buscas por formas colaborativas de interação entre as pessoas, principalmente fora do tatame. Essa será uma oportunidade de seguir seus passos de mestre, numa travessia que pode aproximar pais e filhos, estabelecendo, nessa relação, uma coreografia mais harmoniosa, com menos embates e mais encontros positivos, construtivos e reveladores. 

5/12: "A relação entre pai e mãe e sua influência sobre os filhos"
Luiz Alberto Hanns
Administrador de empresas, psicólogo de casais e especialista em orientação para pais, autor dos livros “A equação do casamento” e “A arte de dar limites”. 
O casamento, na compreensão de Hanns, deixou de ser uma "missão", para tornar-se um projeto prazeroso. Os desafios dessa nova instituição trazem angústias que podem atingir toda a família. Esse encontro vai discutir aspectos que podem acolher questões decorrentes das expectativas dessa relação, tais como: a atração sexual, a fidelidade, os papeis, a individualidade, os filhos, a família de origem (sogros, cunhados…), divórcio, novas configurações de casais etc., e a forma como essa dinâmica influencia os filhos.

O que Charlottesville tem a nos ensinar...


Importante ver o documentário Charlottesville: Race and Terror, sobre o que aconteceu nessa cidade nos EUA no sábado, 12 de agosto, e refletir um pouco sobre como vários fatos no mundo estão interligados, vários episódios de violência, discriminação, escalada da Direita ao poder, volta do discurso do Medo e em seu nome a retirada dos direitos sociais de toda uma população já marginalizada.

Vídeo de Vice News Tonight/HBO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P54sP0Nlngg

Há alguns dias li o livro "As crianças de Hitler", sobre o Programa Lebensborn, ou sobre o "fabrico de crianças perfeitas nas maternidades SS". Uma história assustadora de um fato que ocorreu há mais de 70 anos durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial.
E apesar do mundo não ter mais vivido um conflito global daquela natureza, a ideia completamente absurda de que possa existir um sangue puro e de que uma pessoa possa ser superior a outra por causa de sua raça ainda persiste, assim como as guerras (maiores ou menores) que acontecem no dia a dia por causa disso.
Os neo-nazistas estão aí para comprovar que a estupidez e a ignorância parece ser algum tipo de doença sem cura.
Mais do que nunca, a educação parece ser a única arma possível para abrir os olhos do mundo. Nunca foi tão importante estudar História, em suas várias perspectivas (vencedores e vencidos). Nunca foi tão importante entender o que são Direitos Humanos e a dimensão deles na vida de cada sujeito, em cada lugar do mundo.

Educación para los medios y feminismo: una articulación que posibilita el empoderamiento de las mujeres.

Resumo: El presente artículo ofrece los resultados preliminares de la investigación doctoral de la autora, la cual tiene por objetivo desarrollar una propuesta de educación para los medios con perspectiva de género feminista. Una revisión sobre propuestas de educación para los medios a nivel mundial determinó la necesidad de generar metodologías cuya base teórica, ética y política sea la promoción del empoderamiento de las mujeres y las niñas. Dicha necesidad está basada en que las prácticas de discriminación, exclusión y violencia contra las mujeres y las niñas persisten, incluso en sociedades con altos niveles de desarrollo humano y económico. Se recurrió al empoderamiento de las mujeres como punto de partida teórico y metodológico, como categoría de análisis y como una meta. Se utilizó la propuesta de Nelly Stromquist acerca de los componentes del empoderamiento de las mujeres, y el trabajo de campo se planeó siguiendo el método de los grupos de autoconciencia (creados por el feminismo radical durante los años sesenta en Estados Unidos) con mujeres jóvenes estudiantes de Comunicación.
