Now I have to watch it...

I don't get Netflix, so I will not be watching this anytime soon, unfortunately. Sounds interesting and thought provoking.

That being said, I enjoy Facebook. I love being in contact with people I do not live close to and catching up. I am on Instagram and Twitter, too. Instagram doesn't interest me as much because I am not into seeing endless pictures with minimal comments, but I do have friends not on the FB platform who are there, so I keep my account active. I rarely post there. Twitter for me is political and I enjoy having a forum to communicate with like-minded individuals. A lot of the stuff on Twitter is superficial too, and I can't believe people are writing some of the stuff I read.

To me, I read what interests me and scroll past what doesn't. I don't feel manipulated or addicted to spending time on any of the social platforms.
