See Food Information Diet
Of all the innovations the 21 Century has brought us — few compare to the unfiltered access we have via the Internet today. A virtual cornucopia of information at our disposal reminscient of the library of Alexandria in yesteryear.
With one major difference…
Our ancestors didn’t have reality tv, postmates, social media, viral videos, text messages or the attention span of a Goldfish. Thus, the information they received was relatively balanced & healthy. Whereas today most teenagers & young adults are bombarded with a none stop red light district styled feed.
A feed that is often filled with the proverbial smorgasbord of junk food for thought. Undermining the potential power of instant access to information for the masses.
One can access virtually any book ever written from their portable devices, but if you look at the trending topics on any given day — you find more comfort information & guilty pleasures than hard news.
Over the past decade, research into the impact of an unhealthy information diet has increased exponentially:
social media use for a minority of individuals is associated with a number of psychological problems, including anxiety, depression, loneliness, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and addiction. Because social media is most frequently accessed via smartphones, their usage is intimately intertwined and their mobile nature contributes to excessive checking habits, which often derives from what is commonly labelled as the ‘fear of missing out’ (FOMO).
As we enter into a new decade we run the risk of seeing the number of folks impacted by a “See Food Information Diet” continue to increase.
- That said, what happens when healthy & constructive information is viewed with disdain a kin to healthy food?
- When society by large submits to a Super Sized Buffet of superfluous information?
