Social Media For Good

Social media should be a place we feel safe and fulfilled in

Social Media for Good is a concept focused on the human aspect of online interaction. It brings light, knowledge, joy, understanding, and highlights the positive, all while facing the reality of the negative, and working towards improvement.

The three pillars of Social Media For Good

Create valuable content

  • Be truthful
  • Authentic presence
  • Inspire positive action
  • Engage, share, buy

      Prioritize people

      • Facilitate human connection
      • Encourage strong listening
      • Promote diversity, equity and inclusion

          Have a healthy digital life

          • Awareness of own behaviors and device’s agendas
          • Interacting on purpose

          Digital Literacy

          Social media platforms are profit-centered, and because they’re profit centered they cannot be trusted to look out for their members’ wellbeing.  Increasing members’ digital literacy is one of the best ways to improve the impact social media has on our lives.  
          At Spry, we promote digital literacy in all our interactions.  We teach people why the platforms were made, who codes the platforms’ functionality, and which parts of the algorithm they can personally impact to improve their experience.  We also teach people how to find the original source of content they want to share or that triggers them emotionally. This keeps misinformation from spreading as rapidly.
           We foresee a world where people know how the platforms work and make them work for them.  We invite you to see this possible future too, and to work to improve your digital literacy as much as possible.
