It’s time to be more mindful of how we use social media, a new study from the Center for Political Studies at the Institute for Social Research says. More and more Americans are turning to social media for political news and information, but much of the content they see in their feeds is hostile, uncivil, and attacking, and as a result, we experience more feelings of cynicism and anger about the state of the U.S. From how to navigate fearmongering to election uncertainty, read the key takeaways from the study in this article from The Record.
