Why do we log on, day after day, to social media platforms? Who do you connect with and why? In this episode, I discuss the basic needs of humans and how social media community-based platforms play into those. I also call out how digital communication platforms have been overrun with busywork, from email to Instagram. To get back to our core needs as people, we need to prioritize belonging over busywork.
