"Post-truth" is about the increasing complexity and globalization of our world. It is the result of an ongoing digital revolution where we are loosening our grip on truth because of technology. Social Media becomes a parallel media ecosystem where debates tend to be framed largely by appeals to emotion. Living in a post-truth era means, that borders between truth and lies, honesty and dishonesty, fiction and nonfiction blur. At the same time technology-enabled transparency and authenticity is our hope that, the more transparency manifests, the quicker we’re going to become a better society.
What social is, and will always be, is about presence and closeness. Everyday we enter spaces to have this exact sensation. We use artifacts to form our environment towards our desires. And we adjust our presentation of self to both mesh with and reflect from those around us . It allows us to feel touched, from hundreds of miles away. To hear someone, we have yet to meet, but can understand deeply from a consistent closeness of a dedicated relationship.
