Is Facebook Destroying Our Society???
In today’s video, I discuss my thoughts on Facebook, social media, mainstream media, and its effects on society, addiction, and the dopamine pathway. I also talk about my own struggle with these addictions, and the things I try to do to resist, with a little discussion on how these platforms affect our ability to think freely.
I have witnessed many people stuck in this addiction/dopamine loop that keeps us glued to our myriad devices, while missing out on a wealth of more meaningful interactions, experiences, and moments. I have been guilty of this, as well. I am working on it, along with all the other flaws in my personality, and life. It is not a painless process, it’s going to take more, and more hard work to fix things.
In this video, I go into detail, and share my thoughts on the recent Facebook executive, who spoke out against Facebook, despite being a former Facebook employee. There seems to be a growing conscientious-objector trend happening, as more, and more people "wake up" from these addictions, and realize that we are missing out on so much, including our ability to be free thinkers.
