Social Media Kindness Day

The Editorial Team have come together to share their thoughts on Social Media Kindness Day.

- Student Minds Blog Editorial Team

⭐ How can we use social media to spread kindness and find our community? ⭐

👉 Taylor: Social media truly is a world of its own! We've created a platform where the most love can be shared and communities can be created. It doesn't go without its negatives but, for those who are new to university or just want to 'find their people', then social media certainly is the place to be.

👉 Emily A: We are all unique and, whilst that means we can all bring a new perspective to things, it also means we go through the same thing in very different ways. Be aware of perspectives when sharing your thoughts with others, particularly online - what may seem crystal clear to you could be a very different colour to someone else. Be kind, be considerate, and be conscientious.

👉 Madeleine: Being true to yourself is the best way to connect with others who share your values and to form a community. Posting content which is authentic to you will help you find your people. Commenting kind words can also go a long way!

👉 Emily T: Be yourself! Posting authentic content and sharing what is important to us can draw us into communities of like-minded individuals. It is a great place for self-expression! However, be mindful of the thoughts and feelings of others. Social media is one of the most powerful tools that we have at our disposal. Therefore, it is important to share our stories with care and consideration for other users.

Can you think of any others? Share with the team - we'd love to hear from you!
