Did you know the average person spends 4 years of his life looking down at his cellphone?
Kinda ironic ain't it?
How these touch screens can make us lose touch?
But it's no wonder in a world filled with iMacs, iPads and iPhones, so many I's, so many selfies, not enough us's and we's.
See technology has made us more selfish and separate than ever, cuz while it claims to connect us, connection has gotten no better.
And let me express first, Mr. Zuckerburg.
Not to be rude, but you should re-classify Facebook to what it is, an anti-social network, cuz while we may have big friend lists, so many of us are friend-less, all alone cuz friendships are more broken than the screens on our very phones.
We sit at home on our computers measuring self-worth by numbers of followers and likes, ignoring those who actually love us.
It seems we'd rather write an angry post than to talk to someone who might actually hug us.
Am I bugging?
You tell me cuz I asked a friend the other day, "Let's meet up face-to-face."
He said, "All right. What time you wanna Skype?"
I responded with OMG, SRS and then a bunch of SMH's and realized, "What about me?"
Do I not have the patience to have conversation without abbreviation?
This is the generation of media overstimulation.
Chats have been reduced to snaps.
The news is 140 characters.
Videos are 6 seconds and high speed.
And you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4G LTE, but...get a load of this, studies show the attention span of the average adult today, is one second lower than that of a goldfish.
So if, you're one of the few people or aquatic animals that have yet to click off or close this video, congratulations.
Let me finish by saying you do have a choice, yes, but this one my friends we cannot autocorrect.
We must do it ourself.
Take control or be controlled. Make a decision. Me?
No longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by recording it with a phone, I'm just gonna keep them.
I don't wanna take a picture of my meals anymore.
I'm just gonna eat them.
I don't want the new app the new software or the new update.
And if I wanna post an old photo, who says I have to wait until Thursday?
I'm so tired of performing in a pageantry of vanity that conform into this accepted form of digital insanity.
Call me crazy, but I imagine a world where we smile when we have low batteries, cuz that'll mean we'll be one bar closer to humanity.
