What Social Media could be used for

As I’m listening to the newest episode of my favorite true crime podcast, I am STOPPING everything I’m doing and I start drawing this comic.

Alicia Navarro went missing in 2019 at the age of 14. She was last seen in Glendale, Arizona. Alicia has high functioning autism and went missing after she was lured by a child predator online. She loved playing Minecraft and we all know that online communities can be extremely loving but we’re also 24/7 accessible to people who don’t have good intentions. She left a note saying that she left the house but would return. She hasn’t been seen since.

And then the pandemic hit. People all started to look the same with their masks on and the media was all over the pandemic.

When scrolling through social media, I realize that these platforms have grown into promoted post-agram and promoted post-book. If you watched The Social Dilemma on @netflix , you’ll know that social media started as a way to bring people closer together. There is nothing that would bring people closer together more than accepting non profits to run their missing person posters on their platform to reunite them with their loved ones.

It came to this point where we are shown advertisements for handbags and clothes because it looks like “something we would want” and companies can make money off of it. Though, for every advertisement they run, they can easily show a missing person’s posters in that same carousel post.

There are non-profit organisations like the Anti-predator project, that I have never heard of until this week. They’re such a great cause! There are many more non-profits like this as well who make it their mission to bring kids back home.

On average we spend 2 hours and 24 minutes per day on social media in 2021! Just imagine the impact it would make..

I’m just saying..

I don’t know how to heal from grief

When I talk about my body being in pain, it’s a somewhat visible trauma. I’m in actual physical pain and people can see that. Many people aren’t considering the grief and sadness that comes with having surgery, or being diagnosed with something you weren’t expecting.

Coping

I’m staring in front of me coping with the way I had just woke up. I know there’s my iPad on my lap and trees outside the window. I’m staring not seeing any of it, as if my world is on mute and I’m on the other side watching it from afar. It was a nightmare that got me here and I know this is going to be exactly like this for the rest of the day.

I was scared to bring bad news

I was scared to bring bad news, because every time it happened before, people left me. I was good company for as long as I held my smiles up and I was of use to others, and even up until this day, I’m saying I’m fine to avoid someone else to feel uncomfortable.
