Lots of people are writing and speaking about internet addiction these days. I like Tim Pool because he is a “straight-shooter.” His reports are penetrating, precise and fair. In this video Tim explores  how internet addiction is something deliberately designed and exploited by the social media giants. Well-worth your 15 minutes . . .

Social Media Addiction Is Escalating The Culture War, BY DESIGN. Like counts, retweet counts, reply counts, all encourage and reward people for bad behavior. Journalists are being driven mad by Twitter and Facebook, they use formulaic ragebait content to drive viewership and push themselves to the fringe in order to constantly one-up themselves and the story.

Big Tech companies like Twitter, Instagram, etc likely know this is addictive but then why won’t they stop? Because it makes them money, it keeps us online.

We all need to take a break and we need to make changes if we want to reduce tensions. Free speech can be protected while still removing the gamified structures of these networks so we can simmer things down.”


Young adults (and plenty of not-so-young adults) are addicted to the Internet. No surprise there. It’s easy for parents and teachers, politicians and pundits to brush off Internet addiction as a harmless, inevitable consequence of the digital age, a small price to pay for carrying the information super-highway around in our pockets. But what if I told you that young adults (and plenty of not-so-young adults) are stuck in a feedback loop of digital sexual stimulation, addicted not just to the Internet but to pornography and social media?
And what if I told you that the consequences of these addictions may be quite dire—ranging from depression, anxiety and ADHD to sexual dysfunction and violence? And what if I told you that, as far as social media companies and pornography producers and anyone who advertises on the Internet is concerned, the feedback loop is exactly where we belong? This book pulls readers out of the matrix. Part manifesto, part autobiography, part self-help roadmap, Breaking the Feedback Loop is a concise, essential guide to porn and social media addiction written for young adults and anyone else suffering at the hands of the Internet
