Long article. Interesting read on the powers that social media can have over our minds. I believe txdirt posted some thing similar to this article and thought I would share.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/oct/05/smartphone-addiction-silicon-valley-dystopia

The future is sounding a bit dull :/ at the age of 22 I can proudly say the only social media I have is Snapchat, which is apparently like heroin.

If I lost my social media I really wouldn't care. I only use it for entertainment when im bored like looking at pictures of dirt bikes on instagram. I dont even have 60 followers.

I'm the same. Don't know how many followers I have and I don't care. I haven't even uploaded a pic. Like you I just use it to look at pictures and video clips when I'm bored. I go days without "using" it.

I also have Facebook and Twitter but never use them. I check them once in a while or use Facebook to login to different websites. That's about it.

I do check Vital daily though lol.

I love social media. It's a great way to spy on everybody. Iv'e never enjoyed it for posting stuff very much, simply because of all the posers trying to look badass. I get angry almost every time I check people out because of the stupidity. But I've managed to find out a lot about the kids around my area, what people really are like. It's a great tool to try and get an idea of who you're really dealing with. I do like twitter however to check out all the politicians. Vitals the only site I go on often though.

Hope for the best, Prepare for the worst.

Churchill was a gnarly dude. He saved western civilization. And he was pretty much shitfaced drunk from morning until night the entire time. Check out his daily regimen.

It's impossible for a corporation or government to love you or care about you.

life was much simpler before social media. Say the slightest thing wrong, someone will be pissed and your life can become a living hell. I do enjoy all the free porn though.

That's the internet. Don't need social media for that.

And I agree that life was much simpler before social media. Hell it was simpler before smart phones came along. You wanted to do something with friends or know what was going on in their life you actually had to call the person.

A lot more interaction before all that came along. That's just what I think.

Social media was neat when it first came out and no one really used it. I bailed on all of it about 6yrs ago and don't miss it one bit. It is super addictive for those that constantly need to either tell everyone what they're up to or constantly need to know what everyone's up to.

Knowing what we know about social media. What is the appropriate age to allow your children to:

1. Have an iPhone
2. Engage in social media


My wife is pregnant and I swear the kid will have a flip phone that calls and texts for emergencies only. No cameras. And no social media account until they're 16-18. Totally freaked out about having a baby in the age of information.

i was on the MySpace wagon for the longest time. i used it to get laid, and it worked better than any Tinder bullshit. then Facebook came along and same thing, used it to get laid and it worked for a long time. now though, it's like a parasite. i don't even get on anymore, just post pics from Instagram. i still like IG but it's turning into a shit show too. i can't begin to count how many fuckin' turds i've stopped following lately.

in my opinion, if people are using it for anything more than entertainment, then they've lost sight of what the initial intent was.

My little guy is 21 months now ,I've wondered the same things . Myself and my wife can only be with him so much when he gets older,he's gonna see everyone else using them and what they do on them . I have plans to engage his mind with other things like working on a project car and bow hunting but I just don't think it will over ride him wanting to use electronics.

Vital and non Moto are a different be form of social media, plus I don't think vital is keeping track of my whole life and selling it to the Moto industry (but if that grew the Moto industry I wouldnt mind). Ya I use my old fb account for tinder. You are right tho, a lot of people just use social media to slay.

I meant more that the companies who run the major social medias are becoming really intrusive and saving the smallest bits of info about us, even playing with users emotions based on their likes. Sitting in class so this was hard to type

Yea I haven't had FB since I graduated college. All I did on it was poke cute chics and find out where the next party was. Had a MySpace for same reason. Didn't have Snapchat or Uber. That woulda really helped the getting laid game. I just don't want my kids doing that until there adults in college. So many creeps in the world. And so much smut. Hard to shield them from that until they are older and realize it's only entertainment. All these kids wanna be celebrities but you can't act like them in my real life. Stressful times lmao. I'll keep the kid racing every weekend if it keeps him or her away from high school drunk fests.
