"...we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric..."

"I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works. The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works. No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. You are being programmed"
I pretty much agree with this guy (he was one of the original Facebook executives).  Worth listening from the 21:20 mark to about the 25:30 mark or so.


  1. I've never used Facebook, but I've always been of the opinion that one should never ever ever press the Like button on any site. Every time you do, you are selling a piece of your soul. If you appreciate something, there are better ways to express it. Reply or reshare.

  2. Get the money, but don't sell-out? Right. This guy does make sense, right up to 25:30. Then I'm hearing, "Become a plutocrat." Don't organize the masses, become massively wealthy and then tweak the system. Good luck.
