I'm not sure if you're watching Black Mirror or not. But, you should be.
The first episode of season 3 got me thinking about social media in a way I haven't yet: inequality.
As though we don't have enough forms of inequality (wealth, opportunity, privilege) we now have one more to add to the list: followers.
Do you have a lot? Great, you matter to me.
Do you not. Great, you don't.
Of course, influence is tied to wealth, opportunity and privilege but do we really need another way to measure and to seek the emptiness and lies of inequality?
