Didn’t you suspect the backlash was coming? Is Chamath Palihapitiya right?
The former Facebooker (someone I’ve featured before) gets to the heart of the matter. Calling out the addictive nature of social media –what he calls the “dopamine-driven feedback loops.” He doesn’t mince his words. Listen to his interview and see what you think.
A few days ago I expressed my disgust:
Indeed, we need to call out social media when it is not social, and in fact becoming thoroughly anti-social. We need to aggressively educate our younger generation before they climb on board this seductive train.
Or as Chamath says, we need a ‘hard break‘ from these tools.
