The world of social media can be difficult to navigate. Oftentimes, when we think of social media we think of the negativity that lives there. It’s not uncommon to log onto your Instagram or Facebook account and feel worse rather than better about yourself or your day. That’s not to say that social media doesn’t have a good side. In fact, social media can be an incredibly useful tool for learning more about any sort of topic you’d imagine, especially disabilities, from real people sharing their real experiences online
Oftentimes, we hear of the negative aspects of social media, but not so much the good. As with many things, social media can be both an incredibly useful tool, and a place for discomfort and stress. Today’s world is growing increasingly more accustomed to interacting with others on the internet, and consequently, it’s given us an opportunity to express ourselves, and share the diversity of personhood with one another. Social media is a great place to learn more about the things that interest you, and connect with others who may have similar life experiences as you, especially when it comes to disabilities.
