    society is getting fucked up. people getting followers on instagram, twitter, and facebook. basically, people feel this need and obsession to allow total strangers into their personal lives. i cant see this being a good thing

    I dont think social media is ruining society, per se but its certainly allowing society's dimmest to mess their shit up with ease. Traditionally there was such a huge barrier between someone's private and public life - this has been eroding for decades if not centuries. Our fascination with other people's personal shit is probably a result of it being so taboo for so long. We will probably outgrow this eventually. Or it'll level off.

    Yeah, and I think it also gives these dopes a common place to share their hate....tons of white hate out there after the Robin Williams story.

    Right now what's more important to the media is that Robin Williams kill himself (white man) not the fact a 17 y/o black male was executed [​IMG]


    And lots more like it...

    You could also look at it as society is already an unhealthy, pathological entity. Maybe social media is like society's chemotherapy.

    It makes people think they are celebrities when they are far from it. You can see evidence of it on this board.
