We live in a digital age, in the age of Facebook and SnapChat. We all not only use but NEED the internet. But, we’ve also become totally addicted to and dependant on, Facebook and a slew of other apps, to entertain us- even when we are with our family and friends.
So, while I couldn’t do my job without social media, has it gone too far? Has it permeated too much of society? Does it take over our daily lives?
Take a look at the video below and then reflect…
A poetic short film by Max Stossel & Sander van Dijk: In the Attention Economy, technology and media are designed to maximize our screen-time. But what if they were designed to help us live by our values? www.timewellspent.io What if news & media companies were creating content that enriched our lives, vs. catering to our most base instincts for clicks? What if social platforms were designed to help us create our ideal social lives, instead of to maximize time-on site and “likes”? What if dating apps measured their success in how well they helped us find what we’re looking for instead of in # of swipes? As technology gets more and more engaging, and as AI and VR become more and more prevalent in our day-to-day lives we need to take a look at how we’re structuring our future. Time Well Spent is a movement to align technology with our humanity: www.timewellspent.io
