The Dark Side of Social Media

The Dark Side of Social Media Alarm bells, analysis and the way outThis latest VINT report, written by Sander Duivestein, Trendwatcher New Media and Jaap Bloem, Research director both from the VINT Institute, exposes the impact of social media on our social behaviour. Problems with media are very diverse and have always existed, but the “social” and “mobile” intensity we observe today is definitely overkill.

Social media adoption is often considerably over 85 percent and has practically complete coverage in Chinese urban areas. The easy access through smart phones and other touch screen devices in particular causes a disproportionate call on people’s time and eats away our productivity. This report highlights how social media and the supporting technology may well gain the upper hand, and negatively affect us if not managed appropriately.
