The former President of Facebook said, what is the main danger of social networks

Former President and one of the founders of Facebook Sean Parker said that social networks are dangerous to the human psyche. Such a statement he made in one of his interviews.


Parker noted that because of social networks, people turn into addicts, and children get a significant damage for the brain. He explained that many “likes” and positive comments on networking are delivered to the brains of users so-called charge of dopamine, which is a hormone of joy and pleasure. So, they step by step become a kind of drug addicts starting to use over time more content to the endless “likes” and comments.

Continued use of social networking, according to Parker, could change the relation of man to society, and directly to other people. Moreover, it affects the relationship with spouse, family and friends. He also added that social networks influence the productivity.
