Social media, is it doing more harm than good? This is the crux of today’s podcast. Andrea, Alberto and Brad work their way through the positives, as well as the negatives, of how the rise in social media over recent years has impacted both athletes and coaches.
There are many great things that have come from the increased popularity of various social media outlets, such as: Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, etc. For many, these serve as a great resource for both learning and spreading good information, as well as a healthy source of motivation. It can be used in a way that allows people to get to know a little bit about each other before they ever actually meet. Not to mention, it can be quite lucrative if given the necessary time and focus.
But what about the other side? How could something that sounds so great be a bad thing? What often goes unnoticed in the realm of social media, is the false illusions and portrayals it so often displaces. It’s a highlight reel full of filters, immaculate lighting, and perfect angles. If this isn’t kept in the forefront of a viewers mind, it can serve as a crippling source of demotivation and unrealistic expectations.
So…social media. Is it doing more harm than good?
