@skynebula Btw: I meant to say: Mankind has bigger problems than Social Media rather than it is one of the smallest problems.
Trump's Election = Still better than Hillary Clinton.
Brazil = Corruption
Brexit = Unknown, short term risk, could be a long term win. We will see.
Social Media isn't the root of all the evil.
@skynebula Overpopulation. Pollution of the environment. Global warming.
Social Media is a great way to control the news/ mainstream, gather information, spread propaganda, make people unhappy and create dependencies, but it isn't by far the biggest threat to mankind.
Don't geht me wrong. I still believe a 'social' media on a global scale doesn't work and isn't healthy for an individual, but it isn't the worst threat.
@skynebula Social media is one of the smallest problems mankind has to solve. Sounds too melodramatic to me.
