44. Empathy and Social Media
What is empathy, and why is it so important on social media? That's the question I'm asking our guest today. Nōn Wels is a writer and speaker with his company Feely Human Collective, and podcast host of You, Me, Empathy, a show that explores emotional curiosity and vulnerability. While working in the social media space, it's so easy to become emotionally disconnected from others, as well as from ourselves. This is why practicing empathy is so important for content creators. This episodes talks about what it really means to have empathy for others online, and how it starts with having empathy for ourselves.
