According to the former US president, Social media can end up being very bias to particular individuals. These individuals can get caught up in their own beliefs, finds a group with the same interests and not take into consideration other viewpoints.
“The question has to do with how do we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn’t lead to a Balkanisation of society and allows ways of finding common ground,” Obama said in a lot of experience.
Obama believes in meeting personally to discuss about important issues as it helps understand another individual fully and help become less extreme compared to what the internet portrays.
“Because the truth is that on the internet, everything is simplified and when you meet people face to face it turns out they’re complicated,” Obama stated.
Comparatively Obama used to use very much less Twitter compared to the current boisterous president of the United States, Donald Trump. Trump is seen to exploit a lot of supporters through Social media, which has helped him connect to the American culture.
Further to Social media Prince Harry asked the pressures of being a president. Of which Obama thanked the support of his wife, Michelle Obama for holding his hand throughout a challenging time. Obama added that his term as president, he was allowed to make some positive change in the world which made being president worthwhile.
Obama had an interesting two terms in office, which still could not get a lot of important work done. He states that Obamacare is his downright best decision for the American people to afford basic healthcare.
What an enormous blessing it is to say that 20 million Americans have health insurance that didn’t have it before.
Obama believes the future is bright in the next decade, with people being more healthier, wealthier, and more better educated.
Prince Harry the interviewer is set to marry in May, and the question remains whether he will call his interviewee Obama to the wedding or the current aggressive President Trump.
Harry is seen to have learnt a lot from President Obama, and is a fan of his experiences. Trump on the other hand may be able to help Prince Harry in trying to unstable the world by making decisions like the unpopular’ Jerusalem decision’ which was never his own decision to make.
