Former Facebook Executive on the State of Social Media

Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya, in an interview with Stanford Graduate School of Business, had some very interesting things to say about what social media is doing to us as a culture.

At one point, he says that he believes “we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

He continues, saying that “the short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works. No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. You are being programmed.”

Kind of interesting, isn’t it?
