It's funny how this video is on the ethics of apps- but he has an ad in his video which is known to affect you more psychologically since there is no break to let you know that in fact, this is not part of the video but an ad.

My internet addiction has ramped up during the covid pandemic. Somedays I spend 14 hrs mindlessly surfing the internet researching whatever strikes my fancy. The addiction intensity waxes and wanes, but today it feels really bad; it feels like my ass is glued to the sofa and stepping away feels nearly impossible. I'm seriously considering getting rid of my laptop and using my tiny iPhone SE as my main internet device., which I find much less engaging than my laptop. I'm hoping the void from not being able to get my laptop dopamine fix will compel me to do the many things I've been putting off because of the pull of the internet vortex.

My issue isn't even social media and messaging apps. My problem is my constant thinking about stuff and having the urge to Google it. If I get rid of my smartphone I might make my life more complicated as it also contains a lot of tools which have now become necessary for life such as banking, WhatsApp (here in Europe the primary way of communicating with people you actually know), Google maps etc. – I have yet to find a way around this. If any smartphone developers can release a phone without a browser (and no, deleting my browser hasn't worked so far) and just the basic apps like WhatsApp and utility apps then I am all ears.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I see the need for constant contact with my phones as a type of addiction that requires my detox SNS. If I spend too much time on my phone, obsessively checking the internet, social media, mail, or messages, it makes my feel bad…these things kind of message releases dopamine into my brains, making me feel not bad, and want more….But I sure feel better when the person I am with looks at me instead of their phone…️

Oh my God I thought it was just a myth but social media platforms really are designed to be as addicting as possible 🤯 taking business models from casinos… damn Silicon Valley entrepreneurs…

I doesn’t really work like dopamine hits it is more complicated than that. Just say that we need to train our brain to not need constant stimulation

Took a week off from phones completely. Got back and immediately reentered the social media scene.

Just for perspective, I started becoming active on social media because of peer pressure and necessity. It truly is addictive and after a trial period, I studiously avoided it throughout the 00's and early 2010s, only really getting into it about 5 to 6 years ago because some of my social groups refused to engage in any way other than group chats. Currently I'm still using it for work reasons, while some of my personal contacts have downgraded our friendship because I refuse to engage with them unless they at least call or text.

My point is that social media is not at fault for being addictive. The algorithms used to help you find things you might like are just doing what users expect. Social media is only terrible because users demanded it be terrible. I don't think this Goal Guys video denigrates or demonizes social media companies too much, but it did seem to imply that social media or social media companies consciously set out to make us addicted. We need to recognize that it's a great product whose good and bad qualities exist due to consumer demand. The reason I'm stuck in it and got addicted at some point is still because of my contacts, not because of social media companies / developers.

Anybody who ever had the misfortune to read or write Friendster testimonials should know what I'm talking about.

I downgraded to a flip phone about 8 weeks ago. Will never go back to smart phone. No waking up to my phone, reading books, so much more productive at work, talking to friends on the phone again. Feels great.

I have minimalised usage of fb and twitter but I cannot get a control on YouTube. We cannot delete it in android phones. Is there any way to do this?

Reply
Nai Xo 28/12/2021 - 4:35 Chiều

I'm two weeks out of FB and Insta. I've also quit any form of gaming. I'm on YT only for learning (such as this). Also slowly getting less urges to look at the phone. Results are great even just in a short time. I've learned so much (books, writing, art, etc.) and I am more focused on the more important things in life such as family, nutrition, exercise, etc.
