What I currently get out of social media:

– giving me a space to write down my own thoughts
– getting clarity and dialogue on them from others
– learning about interesting things

What is missing for me:

– feeling part of a community
– forming solid, long-lasting friendships

I have a bit of a tendency towards isolation so I could do with changing my own patterns of behaviour, but I also think social media platforms could do a better job of nudging you towards actual social bonds.
