It’s up to us to resist the vast waves of misinformation coming our way on social media leading up to the 2020 election in America.
The good news is that we can step out of the ocean, so to speak, and move ourselves onto dry land until the waves of misinformation and trolling pass us by. Your Facebook news feed is where these waves are hitting us the hardest, and so we'll find the most stability by avoiding the news feed while still using other features such as groups or events on Facebook.
The highs and lows of the daily news cycle don’t have to sweep us away. We can step to a place that is firm and secure so that we can process the events of our times with clear minds and then take prayerful, constructive action.
The place to begin is with the stuff we allow into our minds, and addressing the role of social media is essential in creating space for silence, prayer, and compassionate action. By blocking or avoiding your Facebook news feed, you'll remove one of the most effective and invasive tools for filling your mind with distressing thoughts.
