It’s ironic that a so-called social mechanism has been turned into such a business and marketing tool, of both products and, too often, socially unacceptable ideals and ideas. These two purposes — social and business — are at odds with one another for a whole array of reasons, including the content in this post. The public-at-large is being hoodwinked by the aggressive way Facebook conflates these two.
Facebook now does little more than add to the pervasive noise of contemporary society. It’s conditioned us to not speak with each other, but rather, at each other.
