I’m retired now, but I taught high school for several years. It was easy to see what was happening as the social media craze began to land. I watched kids move from being vary gregarious to being completely self isolated in just a few years. The ironic thing to see develop was the “poorer” kids, or those whose parents refused to give in to the social media hype, became the new voices of the student body. It was just freaky to see evolve. The last year I taught, my loud, arrogant, brash freshman class from four years earlier had devolved into personal contact outcasts who had rather play with their smartphones than play sandlot softball or pretty much do anything physical. And that included just sitting and talking with their best friend. Few had true best friends but had dozens of shadow figure “friends” and “followers”. They could thumb up a storm, but asked to actually interact on a face to face basis was like asking them to shoot their dog.
I know I felt better when I just thought people were idiots but FB has removed all doubt.

[…] Inherently social. Nearly every new device and app on the market offers some way to connect and communicate with friends, or even perfect strangers who happen to be using the same platform. Tech companies know that humans are powerfully influenced by social pressures and affirmations, and so our devices draw upon these forces to incentivize usage. (Though ironically, technologies designed to create social connections have in fact been shown to increase social isolation.) […]
