    The internet shoulda stay'd in the forums and image boards. F*** Social Media, its cancer.

    I get it, it can be good but it does more harm that it does good.

    what do you guys think ?

    Yep. Needs to be regulated. I don't get why some don't understand the consequences of how bad this s*** is for us.

    Another issue I see popping up in the future with Millennials and Gen Z'ers who were raised on these platforms is: ALL of the embarrassing stuff they posted on these platforms as kids is NEVER going to be gone. People are going to be using these videos/images or WHATEVER they posted to blackmail and ruin lives/futures.

    I was always told "do not post things that will incriminate yourself on social media" and I listened to that.

    SM by design preys on every single psychological mechanism in a human brain to maximize time spent looking at the screen. Im sure its fine.

    Sites that siphon data, manipulate your opinions, force feed you advertising, f*** with your emotions and self confidence. It didn't have to be this way, but that's where the money is

    social media isn't inherently bad. its really our fault its gotten to this point.

    i would say we're currently at a point where it does more harm than good tho

    it鈥檚 a mistake in the sense that the companies are just allowed to utilize and sell our data without us getting any compensation for it, outside of just using their service (which is the deal we agree to when signing up)

    additionally it can do really bad things to peoples mental health, especially children

    Look what happened yesterday

    Good thing is that we are all aliases and are hiding behind usernames. Which is WHAT social media should be.

    Personally I made the mistake of registering an account with my first name and last initial but I think that's still somewhat protective of my IRL identity.

    This is why I don鈥檛 get this site being anti social media while at the same time messing with this site lol. This is way more toxic than Twitter and all that other stuff. I鈥檓 starting to think people like the idea of being anonymous and being able to say what they want without having to face real accountability since they鈥檙e anonymous.

    It does way more harm than good. It鈥檚 just a tool to control opinion and sell s*** at this point. It doesn鈥檛 connect people, it constantly replicates a bunch of simulacrum: a copy of a copy of a copy鈥 it鈥檚 basically a set of codes to reinforce social status.

    I mean technically you can still be anonymous on social media apps, in fact i see more people doing this now, but generally people want to represent themselves on social media sites

    feels like living in the matrix. Just shows how easily controlled people are.
