Social Media Tech

Another Hit?

Social networking is like gambling. It doesn’t matter whether you receive likes or not, win or lose money, the act of participation produces a hit of dopamine; the little neurotransmitters in the brain that make one happy.

It’s important to remember that the rewards for instant sharing and gambling are brief and have huge consequences; for social, you risk your reputation, for gambling, you risk your finances.

The Internet and the casino can both be addictive false realities. Be realistic about what you want to get out of them.
