It’s no exaggeration to say the arrival of Meta’s newest social media app, Threads, is already upending the social media world order.

But like all new apps, initial hype and long-term success aren’t necessarily one and the same. Just because a whole lot of people download something doesn’t mean that they’ll then make it a consistent part of their daily routine.

Still, the fact remains that Threads is the fastest growing social media app of all time. And Meta has the pockets to stick with it for the long haul.

Let’s take a closer look at what this all might mean.

By now, we should all be used to eye-popping headlines from Twitter.

Mass layoffs. Mass resignations. Botched releases. Skyrocketing misinformation and disinformation. Rampant and uncontrolled hate speech. Disappearing ad revenues.

Social media exposure can be both good and bad for you. During times of crisis, it can be a worthwhile tool in accessing the right information and staying up to date with current news. However, it can also be a source of anxiety, since it's so easy to see posts from friends and acquaintances that are often fearful, misinformed or uninformed. If you are staying home during a pandemic lockdown, knowing how to use social media to your advantage is crucial if you don't want this useful tool to morph into a source of accelerating anxiety.

In this age of pandemics and lockdown, read on for tips on using social media a better way. 

1. Stick to verified and reliable sources

It's easy to get overwhelmed with information, from facts to opinions to everything in between, when your eyes are glued to social media all day. This information overload can get worse if your friends on Facebook and Twitter are posting and then sharing each other's posts. Streamline the information you consume by sticking to verified and reliable sources. Start with sites like CDC.gov, the WHO website, official national websites (think Canada.ca) and their Facebook or Twitter pages, and the social media output of scientists and doctors who are at the forefront of fighting and studying the virus that's causing the pandemic.
