    Never understood new-gen InstaPeople scrolling someone else's lives for hours and wasting their own life. Thanks Casey for a great video 🤘

            we are absorbing more info than ever before. g👀gletube collects everything about us every single one of us by using "artificial" intelligence as an unregulated platform to spy on us 24/7. our info is profitible.. the monopolization of privacy.. new world order is here, the matrix isnt science fiction anymore. the only way to have privacy is to destroy our devices.. this isnt a consipracy theory anymore.. my $500 ipad is worst than a type writer because i have everything turned off and every hidden excuse to collect personal data off.. after seeing in "terms of service" how google knows where were are 24/7 "for our protection" i turned off location service.. i ignored popups to turn location services on for a couple weeks. Then i noticed my cell had got my location from a "web page". so i looked into it.. "siri" went int into my bookmarks, got my ip from a bookmarked web page and traced my ip to my current location so my location still shows up.. location services is still "off".. btw your cell records our locations while we travel regardless of how it appears: turned off, in airplane mode, no sim card.. it records very personal data and sends it to "thecloud". there is no such thing ss artificial intelligence.

              I also remember in school girls would leave a single ❤ drew on a piece of paper on my desk but no clue who it would be funny now social media uses ❤ s but its not the same social interaction.

                I remember growing up in school girls walk up to you and give you a folded up piece of paper with two boxes yes or no check do you like me? Ahh the good old days.

                                                you must've said "I love social media, but don't get me wrong I love social media" at least 8 times during this video, I feel as if you're afraid to lose some of your younger audience but I totally agree it is an addiction that we should become conscious of as its tied to anxiety and depression which are on the rise suspiciously

                                                              I don't like the idea of social media where you have friends and you're not anonymous. Everybody can judge you knowing your habits, failures and character. When you are using nickname and nobody knows you then people are neutral to you. You are stranger but you can discuss with the others about everything (even though English isn't my native language and it's quite hard to hide). Furthermore social media like FB, Twitter etc. are vain. The main purpose of writing post is to attract attention. When somebody makes a video for instance on YT, he/she probably has something sensible to share with people.

Which is interesting in that I use to play a lot of video games, big fan of online FPS. I hated how much time it sucked away from the things I really actually wanted to be doing, learn the guitar, model building, wood/metal working, reading, sightseeing, etc. I eventually, about 2-3 years ago, uninstalled the games from my laptop and quit cold turkey, only thing I will play now is a bit of this mini Famicom system I have but that is only every now and then. This freed up so much time do more of the things I actually wanted to do. But before I had quite video games I had started getting into Facebook groups and that eventually started filling in the time I used to devote to games. Really need to limit that now.

Then a few years (decades even) later Tesla died and J.P and Co came and took on his shit and boom we got this!? Remember. Don't think cause you're not present you are not existing. Put down the phone , its not the app sure its part of it, but mostly you and your behaviour. BE PRESENT!
