Nowadays I'm seeing a lot of repeat Takes show up in the GaG home feed. Particularly now we're seeing a constant influx of Takes on texting (which is really quite annoying, and sad that this subject should get so much devotion). One person did one, now everyone has to follow suit. It's this element of social media that couldn't be sadder. It opens gateways for everyone to be followers and do what the others do.
In fact, while social media does have some revolutionary elements for good, and offers some great platforms to be heard from, it still brings out a lot of people who won't think for themselves.
But doesn't mean you can't.
Just because something is big and popular doesn't really mean it's right or as important as it's made to seem. Just because everyone does it or thinks it doesn't necessarily mean it's right or correct, and in the same way just because only one person does it or thinks it doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong or incorrect.
We MUST remember not to be monkey-see-monkey-do. We must remember to be our own leaders and use our own thinking.
Thinking for yourself never gets old, but being a follower sure does.
