Sean Parker, Co-Founder Of Facebook, Thinks Facebook Is Basically The Devil

CNBC - A co-founder of Facebook bashed the company during an interview, saying that the social network was built to exploit vulnerabilities in human psychology.

Sean Parker, founding president of the company, told Axios in an interview Wednesday that the premise of the social media site — a “social-validation feedback loop” — is “exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with.”

A like or a comment on a post sends users “a little dopamine hit,” he said, encouraging them to post again.

“The inventors, creators — it’s me, it’s Mark [Zuckerberg], it’s Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it’s all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway,” he said, according to a transcript of the interview.

Parker said he would tell early holdouts to the platform that “we’ll get you eventually.”

“I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and … it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” Parker said. “It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

The face when you develop a product knowingly fucking with people’s brains to get them addicted to it to make yourselves billions of dollars:

It’s not the hotness anymore, but back in college, Facebook ruled everything around you. It was the most addicting think on Earth. It was much simpler back then- very basic newsfeed and profile, and no adults on it at all. It was the wild west- you could spend countless hours creeping and stalking, and it was the center of the universe. Now- not many people my age use Facebook the way we used to. The feed is too watered down with recipes and 4 year old viral videos, and you can’t post pictures anymore because you don’t want Aunt Linda to see what you did over the weekend. However, over 2 billion people use it, and shit, pretty much everyone I know still logs on every single day just to catch up, so they must be doing something right, eh?

So that being said, how about ol’ Sean Parker having this dose of morality and wailing on and on about how Facebook destroys souls and all that jazz? Hey Earth to Sean Parker, this isn’t 1933 anymore. You can’t just just waltz around the town square and hope somebody fancies you. You gotta post your best pictures onto Facebook and Instagram, put your funniest jokes on Twitter, and hope a girl with low self esteem notices and clicks “like” enough times to warrant sliding into her DMs. Or so I’ve been told that how it works. We are all helplessly addicted to social media, we all know it, and it’s just part of life. Our brains are all warped and destroyed by it, there’s no denying that.

What’s the going rate on destroying children’s/socities brains anyway?

$2.6 billion? I’d destroy many brains for much less.

And how bout Zuck? Facebook wasn’t enough. Instagram wasn’t enough. He had to buy that virtual reality company too, just so he controls everybody in every way. Eventually we’ll evolve to the point where we won’t be able to tell if we’re living in the real world or the Mark Zuckerberg virtual world, sort of like a real life version of Inception where people will then be doing virtual reality within virtual reality.

Oh, it’s coming, folks, and we have no way of stopping it.
