Unloading on social media – The encore has just begun

30 Jan

Despite my book, Chat Republic –or perhaps because of it – it’s been my constant warning to those who would listen: Social media is bringing out the anti-social around us.

This week, the alarum bells were rung by Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook. In December it was former Facebook exec, Chamath Palihapitiya.

As Cook said of social media, “sometimes the very technology that is meant to connect us devices technology is capable of doing great things but it doesn’t want to do great things.”  (Fast forward video to 7 minutes and watch)  Your thoughts?
