"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.

Why am I thinking of Alan Wake? The narration?

Anyway, I'm not in fb or twitter or in anything, and it makes me feel like a bad person. Unperson.

We live in an egocentric world. Even this post has some merit in saying "Oh boy, I hope someone likes this!" and well, deleting every one of those socai media things like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram; I think society is better off without these things in some way.

You wait for that one like, and you feel like your on top, but it's like... a horrible addiction. Everyone who post something that seems intelligent and "catchy" does it for a chance to boost their ego. People just makes sure in hoping were on the same side of some retarded battle of, I dunno, any kind of opinion.

All in all, the animation speaks for itself. Really... the guy shooting himself with what I assume heroin I guess was no better off than the dude on his phone. The creepy smile, the position he sits, his entire position honestly labels it well enough. You could see the same person.

Social Media drains you as a person. It voids a lot of emotion and care, like a drug even. It's deteriorating human contact and well...

Enough of that, animation earns all five. Short and powerful, great animation, clever use of scenerio.

Been following Zen pencils for a while and this was one of my favorite comics put up by Gav. I appreciate seeing it make the rounds in other places. Nice job on the animation. :)

Personally as a teenager living in this Generation, I don't have a phone.
I honestly don't see the point in finding out my friends or families personal life, I just check occasionally for when there's something important to be said.
Now the message that I understand is that we are growing up with technology, and it has become a part of our daily lives. The fact that I am watching this video is proof.
Is it a bad thing? In my opinion, no.
It also brought us a convenient way to interact with people, we as humans should clearly understand the moral consequences of using it when, let's say the next generation will grow up naturally with it.
