Vatican Urges Reflective Not Reactive Use of Social Media

From an AP story by Nicole Winfield headlined “Vatican singes out bishops in urging reflective not reactive social media use”:

The Vatican urged the Catholic faithful, and especially bishops, to be “reflective, not reactive” on social media, issuing guidelines to try to tame the toxicity on Catholic Twitter and other social media platforms and encourage users to instead be “loving neighbors.”

The Vatican’s communications office issued a “pastoral reflection” to respond to questions it has fielded for years about a more responsible, Christian use of social media and the risks online that accompany the rise of fake news and artificial intelligence.
