Social Media Has Become Extremely Annoying Of Late

Introduction

“It’s the gradual, slight, imperceptible change in your own behaviour and perception that is the product”

“The second you get online, there are so many things fighting for your attention, but your attention is all you have. And if you give it away cheaply, you’ll gradually exhaust yourself until there’s not much left over for the things that you really matter.”

“In that (social media) world, any time two people connect, the only way it’s financed is through a sneaky third person who’s paying to manipulate those two people.”

— Jaron Lanier, Founding Father of Virtual Reality, The Social Dilemma

Now you’ll have to click on ‘View comments’ after ‘comment’ to start commenting

“We’ve moved away from having a tools-based technology environment to an addiction-and manipulation- based technology environment.”

— Tristan Harris, Former Design Ethicist at Google, The Social Dilemma
