#socialmedia (a street-art timelapse video by the Parisian artist Above) explains how we, the denizens of digital culture, waste too much time on social media… We make regular compromises with our personal life, sexual life and work life for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare, Youtube or Pinterest even though it’s quite clear that a lot of the time spent in social media is for leisure and pointless entertainment.
You check your Facebook page while driving. Tweet a message that you ‘just took a shower’. Instagram a photo of your double soy macchiato with extra foam and so it continues ad infinitum. […] I have more questions than I do answers with social media. We live in a ridiculously hyper fast pace life where information is exchanged so rapidly that it makes us feel inadequate and drains our attention span.
