The information flow on Social Media is enormous, strong as a flood and fatal for your personal and working time like a hurricane. Yes, it's almost a natural phenomenon where you have little control without proper beforehand planning and which development curve has already acquired a negative tendency.

Before you look at the comics and then hurry up to close the tab with this article, I just want to confirm it's not a WWBD (what would Buffy do) post (WWND - what would Neo do - in our case).

Medium was largely talked about a couple of months ago.
