Posting facebook memes makes you stupid

To early users, the internet held such promise for people and communities. Now, on the eve of Facebook's 15th birthday, social media is making people depressed. What happened?


Since it launched in 2004, Facebook has been working to "give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected."
This sounds great. But is it, actually?
Does connecting with everyone you've ever met ever on Facebook make you happy? Does sharing everything with them on Facebook make you jump out of your seat with joy? Probably not.
In fact, if the research is any indication, you may actually be finding Facebook and other social media sites aren't so great for your mental health. Instead of feeling blissfully open and connected with your friends, you feel inadequate or maybe even a bit depressed.
Is social media making us sad because technology is inherently alienating? Is Facebook actually just evil?
We've been asking questions about technology like this for a rather long time. But the answer is a bit more complicated.

Whatever it is, I hope that Cliffy is paying attention. It is probably too late for him though.

Explains why kids are killing themselves and each other at alarming rates.

They've never lived a fascistbook free life.

Please reconsider



What a waste... Totally avoidable

We got both of our kids away from Facebook early on but not before they opened accounts (unfortunately). Anyway, Facebook is on the way out because they lost their "cool" factor a couple of years back and the kids have moved on. If I were Zukerberg, I'd be quietly, secretly selling off my shares. It's not as if he's doing it at a loss. They were worth hot air when he first held them.

It's a far more complex dynamic for kids in school now... on top of the standard stuff that you or I may have gone through, there are tons more these kids have weighing on their shoulders

I see it in them. It gets worse every year, too. We're in trouble, man. They are our future.

Perhaps some snowflakes can get Zuckerberg charged with a crime. According to the Google, Zuckerberg is worth $62.9 billion dollars. at least, that was last hour.
