  1. Ah, remember a time where not everything had to be on social media? Now it's like if you had a company and you didn't have a social media page… you fail.

  2. does anyone know if the white matter thing is due to the Internet addiction or they have the Internet addiction because they have less white matter in their brain

  3. if somebody sent a virus to a satellite system so complex that it destroyed all communication, and the power lines were all we had..what if somebody hacked the system? is that possible? how much productivity increase in the world would we really see and how much would be forgotten about "us".

  4. I hate social media, every day I see people with their faces buried into their phones like a bunch of mindless zombies, and worst of all they aren't even aware of their surroundings, society is brainwashed these days, I would much rather talk to someone face to face.

  5. I have a question…. I feel so torn when it comes to social media because I want to start a YouTube channel but don't want to use social media to get myself noticed or out there. how do you get people to start to view your channel without having a audience to work with already??? I deleted all forms of social media when I graduated high school in 2013 and only have 30 followers on snap chat to this day. snapchat is the only thing I use because I feel like it an upgraded way to communicate with your REAL friends. and like that nothing on snapchat is permanent. but besides that I don't like to use social media. i feel like it's a negative space.
