Please, Don’t Use Facebook Live

Please don’t use Facebook Live — it’s dumb.

It’s another ploy by Facebook to get users to share more. They’ve actually publicly said that. It’s an effort to serve their business model first and their users second.

It’s also another weapon in the arms race of content production. Just like any arms race — there are no winners, only losers. That’s not to say there will not be survivors just that those survivors will be losers, too.

The internet will get even harder to digest. We will continue to be flooded with information yet starving for knowledge, making it even harder for humanity as a whole to grow intellectually and develop progressively.

*Note: Totally use Facebook Live if you’re going to be creating something worthy of people’s time. Leave everything else to Snapchat.
