Look up Simon Sinek on YouTube, especially topics involving Social Media. He discusses this exact issue exceptionally well, and having worked in IT for as long as I have, the past 5 in the educational setting, I agree 100% that Social Media is partially to blame for a lot of what we see today.Bullseye! It's not so much the "money shot," but the "attention shot." Facebook in particular is seductive. I'm not a social-media person, but even I've been pulled in, checking in to see how many "likes" my photo has. It just sucks you in. The horse ain't goin' back in the barn.
What scares the bejeezus out of me is what happens when Warn-On Forecast becomes a reality. The NWS will be able to tell people there's a high probability that two or three specific counties will be under a Tornado Warning in 90 minutes. That gives all the spread-out chasers time to zero in on a particular spot, just as the locals are trying to flee. Am I overreacting?
