2. ”Social media is a marketplace that trades exclusively in human futures.”

The emails that we receive when our friends tag us in photos on Facebook, are aimed at growing activity on their platforms.


6. “Social media starts to dig deeper and deeper deeper down into the brain stem and take over kids sense of self-worth and identity.”

7. “If you’re not paying for the product, Then you’re the product.”

MIND BLOCK ayyindaaa..


8. “We’re the product. Our attention is the product being sold to advertisers.”

Rey rey reyy..

The content that we assume available for free on the Internet, is actually being paid for by the advertisers. They pay for our attention and make money from that.

9. “Social media is a drug.”

We have a constant urge to connect with people, and a vehicle like social media that optimizes this connection, gets us addicted.

10. “A whole generation is more anxious, more fragile, more depressed.”

Gen Z, those who were born after 1996 or so, have been the worst affected by the use of internet and social media.

No jokes here. This is genuinely sad.
