When I first started posting on Instagram, I thought it would be a good way to reach and broaden my audience, especially among young people because I think it is important to have cross-generational conversations. But I wanted my posts to have meaning and substance. However, like too much of the internet (which originally promised to bring greater democracy and education around the world), social media has also brought trolling, online harassment and contributed to hate crimes and violence around the globe. Moreover, outlet by outlet, commerce has come to dominate social media, which is now happening on Instagram. As a result, we will continue to do posts about various happenings but as of today, we are launching the Chicago Gazette, a regular report from me that you can subscribe to for free.
