Human vs Internet

“We, as human beings, think that through social networks, we’ve somehow become more social creatures.

The problem with this theory is, the more we “connect” online, the less actual human interactions we have, making us actually fairly unsocial.

A new video breaks down exactly how the social aspects of human beings have evolved and transformed, showing how we’ve regressed from a social standpoint.

Shimi Cohen shows exactly what’s wrong with our social structure now, and how we manipulate how we want to be presented to peers, family members, and potential mates on social media, rather than having vulnerable and genuine conversations in real time.”

Very interesting! I had studied lot of what was said here in Psychology A Level (oh how I miss it!), so I really enjoyed this video. Plus, the graphics were fantastic.

Richard Dawkins: Why are there still Chimpanzees?

Richard Dawkins clears up the misunderstanding of Evolution that is all too common: If we descended from Chimpanzees, then why are there still Chimpanzees? Dawkins explains that we DID NOT.

Not that this isn’t the most obvious thing ever, but believe it or not, I have heard people express this opinion/misconception!!
