Have anyone seen this?

I’m genuinely not one for getting too wide eyed about the state of affairs but if you have kids who have smart phones/use social media then I strongly suggest that you watch this with them.

I had an inkling of the tactics social Media use, but when you hear the extent they go to hook you in. Then the statistics running next to it ( teenage self harm, suicide rates going through the roof)

Seriously, watch it.....

A kid in my son's school killed herself last week and another 13 year old did in a neighboring school the week before.

The internet is a great learning and entertainment  tool, it's also a terrible social platform. Television for the millennium.

It's going to be a struggle to drag kids away from the internet after lockdown in the UK. This extended period at home will change a generation, or generations, depending on how they are split up.

The programme touched on how Facebook has added to the Political division in American Adults. For example, it will have worked out what preferences are and then your feed becomes dominated by similar threads which compound and further ‘views’. You won’t get shown the opposing view point. Of course, most adults will ( I hope) realise what is happening and back away but there will be a significant amount that don’t realise and their views become more extreme. This was happening to both Democrats and Republicans.
They again had statistics about the hate developing between opposing political views, years ago people may have disagreed with each other but this was out and out hate, to the point they wouldn’t  tolerate each other, lose friends over it. It was filmed before Capitiol Hill,I believe.

I can't believe people use it for anything other than getting in touch with family and friends.

Don't forget taking the piss out of your mates tea pictures.

Social Media just gives everyone a voice in any matter.

Any Netflix or Twitter trained medical experts on my Facebook instantly get told that they have no fucking clue.

Then the doyles that share any old shite get their post replied to with facts.   The excuse is always Oh I just shared it, yes that's why you are part of the problem dumb fuck.
