Mark Zuckerberg ignored one big thing about Facebook during his testimony

It’s BAD FOR YOU.

It’s time to admit that this noble experiment has failed. The promise of joyful and meaningful connection has given way instead to a bizarre amalgam of baby pictures, vacation photos, political diatribes, cat videos, memes, wry observations, banal holiday greetings, and probably a lot of other stuff I’m forgetting because it’s so forgettable.

Much of social media has proved to be a divisive force, not a unifying one. It’s astonishingly addictive, but we all know it’s unhealthy. A review of academic research in Harvard Business Review last year was headlined: “The more you use Facebook, the worse you feel.”

Nacissistic to boot, he says.
