Facebook was right from the beginning designed to abuse a vulnerability in the human psychology. It is highly effective in making us all addicts and creating money flow from corportate businesses and other propagandists in the new awareness economy.
You don’t pay for Facebook with money. You pay with your awareness which is much more valuable.
The only way out to regain your freedom is to take control of your awareness. Start by becoming aware of what you are aware of. Mindfulness is our basic political weapon against the powers that shouldn’t be. And don’t be fooled into thinking that revolution happens through Facebook. They want you to think that your messages gets through but they really don’t. Everybody just remains stuck in addiction and nothing really changes.
“It’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.”
– Sean Parker, early Facebook investor
