The Web2 era has taught us that people’s lives are rarely as they appear online. Entering a virtual space where you can explore whatever, meet anyone, and find unlimited chances can be nice.
However, it is obvious what harm has been done: merely showing the best versions of ourselves online has wreaked havoc on mental health.
The growing gap between real life and online personas has had a huge impact on people’s lives, particularly those of young adults.
We witnessed the harm and suffering firsthand as our own teenagers struggled to balance the highs and lows of the demands for inclusion and belonging, as well as the rollercoaster of emotions and insecurities.
The resulting emotions of loneliness and inadequacy have a cascading impact, making it challenging for people affected to break the cycle and regain confidence in themselves.
We worry that there is a growing pool of impressionable people who are prone to this culture as the average age of online customers falls.
In Web3, we have a chance to change things. How can the NFT and Web3 communities make plans to advance?
We understand that in order to address the issue at its root, we must normalize diversity as a result of the harm caused by conformity culture.
Numerous sites state that studies have linked heavy social media use to feelings of loneliness and sadness.
As a result, we must make those baby steps toward a society that respects individuality and values each person’s special traits.
Through the introduction of motivational speakers, self-growth courses, and accessibility to mental health tools, we may reach across the globe to build an online community that directs people to useful resources.
And that’s what we have to do. We must encourage individuals to embrace their individuality and seize the chances for self-improvement presented by this new community.
NFTs enable people all around the world to come together in groups for common interests and concerns. They provide you the freedom to back causes and principles you cherish.
With good intentions, the entire world helped create Web2 by creating platforms for online interactions. However, Web3 now gives us the chance to undo the unintended damage.
The beginning of this new period is undoubtedly exciting because it is brimming with business potential and novel experiences, but with fantastic opportunities also comes a pressing duty to carry out the proper actions.
Without the assistance of a positive and understanding community, we’ll be prone to the same pitfalls that Web2 fell into.
We think that everyone has a duty to construct a better future for online life, especially businesses participating in the development of Web 3.
Before Web3 becomes a crucial aspect of our life, we must create a route toward a more welcoming, tolerant, and supportive online environment.
