Learning about sustainability… and facebook

Sunday morning, Berlin.

Over the last couple of weeks I have managed to adjust my facebook feed to actually show things I am interested in. I might be one of the last people to realize how to properly use the “likes” on pages you are interested in. Every page you like on facebook – and I am not talking about your friends profiles, but about facebook pages like “Nature”, “Dancing in the dark” etc. – shows up on your newsfeed. Means between all your friends posting a picture out of an airplane titled “high above the clouds” or their most recent meal, the pages you liked also slip in their latest posts.

When I joined facebook in 2008 or something I was all excited about all my friends everyday lives. By now I have realized that we all do pretty much the same. And facebook can by no means substitute REAL conversation. I really hate it when I ask a friend “Hey, how was your vacation?” and he/she answers with “Haven´t you seen my pictures on facebook?”. eeeehhhmmm… OK, I am going little off topic here.

What I wanted to write about was sustainability. Or actually and topic YOU are really interested in. I am interested in changing the world by finding sustainable ways of living. Therefore I am following many many pages on facebook posting stuff about these topics. And oh do I suddenly love my newsfeed again! Facebook has a new purpose – for me at least. Here are two of my favorite pages to follow:

Sustainable America is a page mostly concerned with the American food industry.



They collect and post things about basically anything related with sustainability from engineering approaches to sustainable ways to produce clothes. Food for thought.
