This video is going to be tl:dw; for a lot of people. I wonder how much of that is due to social media addiction. 😉
It’s a TED talk by Dr. Cal Newport on the dangers of using social media.
The main points he makes are:
- Social media is a slot machine in your phone (or computer).
- You don’t need social media to succeed professionally.
- There are harms associated with using social media (anxiety, fragmented attention).
Here’s the full talk, for those of you who still have attention spans.
