Social Media and Reality

Something I have been considering lately is what effect does social media have on my daily life. I had an interesting conversation with a philosophy professor the other day on the subject and he indicated that something possibly sinister is afoot. Instant gratification, he called it. I can admit that I am one of those people who have uncontrollable impulses to open every notification I receive on my cell phone. I like to think of it as a mechanistic attachment to my person at times. Maybe one day I’ll take up a hobby in delaying the gratification I get from media and getting back in touch with nature. haha. right…
