The biggest mistake us early adopters made was allowing Twitter and Facebook to be so big for so long. We should have moved on 5–10 years ago and convinced our family and friends to too.

@mike Agreed, now it’s hooked people’s attention and given them the ease in quickly posting to achieve the dopamine hit. Like dopamine, however, which only lasts for two or three minutes, their “easy” post on Twitter or Facebook quickly disappears into the digital ether. They’re trading ownership of their content for their mental well-being, and the financial benefits of selfish and uncaring corporations.
