I feel like one of the most significant contributing factors to the proliferation of wacky Facebook-driven conspiracy theories is boredom. People, especially parents whose kids are at school, get bored if they hang around the house all day, and their minds can wander in the most detrimental ways. If I had to clean a house all day and spend 5 hours a week in the school pickup line, I might also start believing that our computers are releasing damaging chemicals into our skin! It’s certainly easy to fall into this world of conspiracies if a huge online group of moms in your area necessitates belief in wacky ideas to be in community with them. I can’t imagine it’s easy to find friends in your city’s mom group if you ardently believe in the necessity of doctors. These posts will undoubtedly feel familiar if you don’t fit in in your Mom Facebook Group.
