Former Facebook VP Says His Kids Aren’t Allowed To Use Facebook Sh*t
That social networks have come to change a lot of things that nobody has doubt. However, in the opinion of Chamath Palihapitiya, a former social network giant Facebook employee, social networks are a machine that “exploits vulnerabilities in the human psyche” and is destroying society.
Moreover, earlier we reported that how the social network giant Facebook’s former president, Sean Parker, criticized the social media giant by claiming it is an addictive tool that “violates human psychology.” These statements were collected by The Guardian and Axios media in an event held in Philadelphia this week.
Parker described how in the early days of Facebook people told him they were not on social networks because they valued their interactions in real life. Now, he says, “our minds can be hijacked”.
“(Facebook) It literally changes your relationship with society, between them, it probably interferes with productivity in strange ways, only God knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains,” he said.
“The creators of social networks like me, Mark or Kevin Systrom (Instagram) understood very well that this was going to happen, and we still did it,” said the former president of the social network giant Facebook, Sean Parker.
Chamath Palihapitiya even became vice president of the social network giant Facebook for the area of user expansion. Today he feels tremendous guilt for helping to create a machine that is helping to destroy society. According to the vice president of the social network giant Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya, social networks are “programming” the brains of citizens in a way that “eliminates civil discourse and cooperation, fostering misinformation and lying.”
Regarding the use of social networks, the vice president of the social network giant Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya reveals that “he does not use this ‘Sh*t’ and does not let his children use them as well.” Every citizen advises them to take a serious break in their use (not just Facebook, but of all).
The vice president of the social network giant Facebook, Chamath Palihapitiya also considers that the behaviours that users of social networks have are being programmed and warns that the “short-term effects of dopamine release, which is at the origin of cycles that are destroying the way society works.”

As an example of “manipulation” that social networks allow, The vice president of the social network giant, Chamath Palihapitiya recalled what happened in India where 7 people were killed because there was a bunch of fake messages on WhatsApp, which is part of the social network giant Facebook, and which made several people believe that one group of visitors were kidnappers of children.
Not only the Sean Parker and Chamath Palihapitiya criticized the industry, even one of the former employees of the tech giant Google, Tristan Harris, who is the tech giant Google’s Design Ethicists and one of several technology experts interviewed by The Guardian in October to criticize the industry.
