PostSubject: Former Facebook Exec: 'You Don't Realise It But You Are Being Programmed'   Wed Dec 13, 2017 10:52 am

This is the year everyone - including founding executives - began publicly questioning the impact of social media on our lives.



Last month, Facebook's first president Sean Parker opened up about his regrets over helping create social media as we know it today. "I don't know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or two billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other," Parker said. "God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."

Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice president of user growth, also recently expressed his concerns. During a recent public discussion at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Palihapitiya - who worked at Facebook from 2005 to 2011 - told the audience, "I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works."

Some of his comments seem to echo Parker's concern. Parker has said (emphasis ours) social media creates "a social-validation feedback loop" by giving people "a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever".
