    We like anything and everything that gives us a high, and the social media my friend, is the new drug.

    what I mean by high, is the constant hit of dopamine you get, on hearing that ting sound on your phone. The anticipation, of what the replies to your topics would be like, the curiosity to see, what that red mark over your dm's have for you.
    The social media serves as a constant positive feedback loop which is highly addictive.

    Ask a heroine addict, if they like heroine.
    So we dont necessarily like social media, we are addicted to it!

    I personally don’t like social media. But majority of the people do. I believe we are social animals....so if we aren’t social, we’re just animals. No person likes to be lonely, hence, by being on social media they get a platform to connect to people.
    Also, modern people have the urge to show off and keep their view. The social media provides us the platform to do so. And as the unhorney man said.. Its a drug. And its hard to get your drug addiction removed.

    This actually makes sense



  • @TheGoldenMole
    Technically speaking, I’m not on social media per se. I am on business/student connecting platforms which sorta serve the same purpose except the fact thst the conveyed communication is strictly professional.
    And you’re referring to TWS as social media, think again. But I feel the need, the need for speed (speed of communication).

    I understand the joyful feeling of getting likes and attention, but there are also lurkers. Even people that stay on the side likes and don't get any attention at all still come and...I don't know... watch? where is fun and dopamine in that?

    I personally don’t like social media.

    Then why are you on it?



  • @Wolfie_11 This is social ( there are social people, youre being social). This is the media, it is the internet. This is, by definition, social media. You are on it, yet you don't like it. Why?
