Liking everything

Dude performs an experiment on facebook:

Quote
This is a problem much bigger than Facebook. It reminded me of what can go wrong in society, and why we now often talk at each other instead of to each other. We set up our political and social filter bubbles and they reinforce themselves—the things we read and watch have become hyper-niche and cater to our specific interests. We go down rabbit holes of special interests until we’re lost in the queen’s garden, cursing everyone above ground.... By liking everything, I turned Facebook into a place where there was nothing I liked.

Many years ago I saw a cartoon that really stood out to me. It was of a blank-eyed family sitting in front of a TV and tubes from the TV were going into their veins. 
Change that TV into the  internet....

Just one more reason I avoid Facebook whenever possible.
Give them your teeth, not your belly.
