What A Blunder ! Duh Moment.

Social media can be like driving down a winding mountain road in thick fog. Every twist and turn has you on edge. You’re afraid at every bend.

What’s around the corner? Which way does the road go? At any moment, you could hit black ice or a rockslide or a fallen tree.

Yes, you’re driving, but you feel like a passenger… totally at the mercy of the road. You feel like you’re out of control.
