"The Social Media Generation"
This is an adaptation from the original comic "Marc Maron: The social media generation" by Zen Pencils.
The script used in that comic is a quote from Marc Maron's book "Attempting Normal".
This animation is also available on youtube in HD.
Definitely got the point across.
Makes you think about how social media is corrupting society.
Slaves to attention.
I feel this is a brilliant way of delivering this message, very smartly illustrated, a bit of exaggeration but that sometimes is a requirement to make a point.
Well, if you watch the last scene closely, when Marc is sittin' like the addict in the next stall, you shall note that the narator is saying "Twitter and facebook are my techno-parents, sating the child of me. But they're not beyond abusing him" It truly is making a comparison between the drug adiction and social media's adiction. But are you guys sure that one isn't as bad as the other?
See, people commit suicide because of their status, harasment, cyber-bulling, and a whole of other motives. It might not be as visible and dangerous as most of drugs yet, but you're are underestimating the problem that it may become in the years to come.
However, it's also true that yearning to be acknowledge was put in a rater childish way, it's not like this. Most people need to be aware of this acknowledge, not only children. You may say that you don't, but try walk a very long road all alone. You shall start talking to yourself to prove that you are real and don't get insane. :P
Nice! I don't got fb or twita so yeeee :P
A great short that tells it exactly like it is.
HBO starts targeting children!
What place? Earth!
