Social pressure

Social pressure is amplified by the internet.

People tend to gravitate towards posts with a high number of likes as the algorithms push such content to the forefront. In life, it’s easy to follow the crowd without necessarily knowing where they’re headed.

However, it’s vital to recognize that not all popular content on the internet is of high quality. There may be excellent work that goes unnoticed simply because its creators are not popular.

To counter this, we must make our own decisions about what we like and follow. We shouldn’t let ourselves be swayed by the crowd. Instead, we should support good work, regardless of its popularity. This involves seeking and appreciating content that aligns with our values and interests.
