Well, along with Bookface, Twitter must be resistible, as I have resisted both since the start.   James Corbett has come to a decision about his participation and offers some analysis on what Twitter is about.

Twitter
Facebook
Instagram

All Geard to the dopamine hit in a variable reward response system like gambling

They knew it
They exploited it purposefully
Tied all three together for a triple hit

Now combine that with the danger of 5G.....

All we have to do to defeat it is not join it.

 

Frankly I'd like to see everybody on the planet open 5 accounts on every one of these social media turds and fill their servers with this xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I did open a facebook account 5 years ago because of constant pressure from my partner to do so. I deleted it after one week. I have never had a desire to even look at twitter, and I guess instagram is pointless when you do not carry a phone.

 

Many consider me a dinosaur, I lived for years surgically attached to a blackberry for work. When i retired, I never wanted to see a phone again. What a different (better IMO) world it would be without cell phone addiction..................

I quit FB after neglecting it for some time.  I did like interacting with my family on it and seeing their photos but...

 

I still like Instagram.  I'm on there with a fake name, not really posting much but taking in some choice myco people and other positive stuff.

Yeah, I'm still on IG, fake name, no photos with my face, disposable email, etc.. Data mining me would only turn up things I would tell anyone anyway, I like graffiti, rick and morty, goth girls and wait for it... cats.

I've been social media clean for about a year (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), no cable, 'decorative' TV sits on a stand unplugged since we moved into this apt 9 months ago.

 

The distractions are not missed!

 

...then i found this place!

The concept of fragmented attention is interesting.

The statement that fragmented attention can permematly reduce your concentration ability is frightening

This old man is a long term addict of all fukin 3!
It's turned into a luv - hate relationship.
 

I admin 5 groups on fukface and can't imagine detox and abandoning a couple of great causes in a couple of closed groups.

 

Everything posted in both videos is word!

 

WTF is an old fart to do?

 

I can't say at this point that I'll abandon my post anytime soon :(

He's describing the perfect Skinner Box, and used a classic but not-quite-perfect example of one to illustrate his point (the slot machine). It's operant conditioning 101, and just as insulting to the individual as subjecting them to Pavlovian conditioning (which is what the little notification/alert sounds do, causing us to drool for validation or whatever).

 

 

And I hope he used your picture in that TED talk (near the beginning) with your permission, Alder!

After being banned for 24 hours I have finally left Facebook. I need Twitter to get points FOR the GLOBAL CITIZEN FESTIVAL. Global citizen.org
Free concerts for sharing the good message and watching videos(muted several screens open to get points) on basic needs. Education, clean water, basic rights. Amazing campaign. Got to see Stevie wonder /Alicia keys / kings of Leon + others and the black keys/Neil Young & someone else I can't remember rn in Central Park for free. Just for watching these videos... Which are informative and for the good of all. They have shows all around the globe.
