Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and now TikTok have all ended up inspiring a huge chunk of new users to identity as vague stereotypes associated with mental illnesses or disabilities. Trauma TikTok follows the annoying rise of ADHD TikTok earlier this year.

I assume this is because most social platforms emphasize identity over content, which leads users to convert their identity INTO content, which, in turn, creates endless personality archetypes to connect with each other to. Simply put: On corporate social networks, where you’re expected to share content, everything eventually becomes a Zodiac because you are the content. Though, who knows, maybe this is just a trauma response to being too online.
