Facebook opium of society.
At the time Facebook came out in 2004, most people considered it as an international forum. Many people who lost touch with their friends got another way to contact people from the past. It was great at the beginning; the aim was to keep in touch.
Unfortunately, this didn’t stay that way forever. The company hired phycologists, behavioral analysts, and many other specialists to make people who use Facebook get addicted.
Today many people are addicted to Facebook. Some people will do anything for a so-called “thumbs up.”
If you consider it, Every company has a product, and on Facebook, “YOU” are the product. Did you ever wonder why all of those customized ads pop up in your Facebook flow? People do not pay attention, but Facebook can affect their sleep, social behavior, and relationship with their partner. Many people get divorced because of Facebook and activities which are done on Facebook.
Don’t get me wrong; of course, some people use Facebook responsibly and take advantage of the available function without getting addicted. Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. As individuals, we face an army of specialists who have focused on making us addicted to Facebook.
Of course, even if Facebook did not hire specialists to influence us, it is still a platform that many people will try to take advantage of. Many people do not analyze what they get in their flow and forward it. This makes it easy for false news to get a free ride to poison some other people.
Facebook as an idea is a great one, but the way it is implemented right now makes it one of the evilest platforms after google.
Let me explain why this sort of organization is evil. What is one of the most precious things we have in this life? Free will. Free will is one of the most precious things we have in this life.
When governments and others block our free will, we notice this because force and arms are often done. I do not say that removing free will by force is good; all I am saying is that it is visible. You can act on it and show your dissatisfaction.
The influence you get with Facebook is new programming on your behavior. This reprogramming is done slowly, and it is extremely harmful. This way, free will is influence, and the person has not even noticed. Imagine a society in slavery that people do not even know that they are slaves.
This is Eurika for people who are crazy about power. People will do whatever they have been told without any objections.
Suppose you ask so now what? Should I stop using Facebook?
You do not need to stop using Facebook but make your activity ask less as possible. Click less on the like button, for example. That way, they don’t know your preference and dislike. Share as little as possible; this is the information that will be read and analyzed.
The point of this article is to make you familiar with ways organization tries to manipulate us. I don’t want to change your behavior or say to use a service or not. It is all up to you.
The choice is always easier if we have more information. It is not hard to understand that knowledge is a blessing.
I used to think that ignorance is a blessing; if I am not aware of the world’s pain and if I am ignorant about it, I will not suffer so much. Not knowing will cause suffering as well as knowledge, so I would rather like to know.
In the end, I would like to thank you for reading this article, and I hope you liked it. If you liked the article, share it with someone who you care about. I leave you in the light and love of the one infinite creator.
