"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.
I guess I relate, but I've never been much of a social media person. I don't have a facebook, I rarely glance at twitter, and I use tumblr to follow amusing comics.
I think I relate because of youtube. It's not the thumbs up that does it for me, or the views. It's the comments telling me what they thought of it. I can't improve without critics. However most comments are sadly one word quips such as 'awesome'
I quess I relate, but then again I'm on the computer a lot.
I don't have a facebook, or twitter, only Google + but tht comes with Gmail
The one time I did have it was for a short while in senior year out of curiousity, but I got bored quickly and just got rid of my account before the years end, so I can't relate directly to this.
I can, however, say they people have definably become more isolated over the years.
Before the Ipod and Mp3 craze, you wouldn't see everyone listening to music and tuning out the world (Trust me, much more cumbersome to take a CD or cassette compared to an Mp3, and there's many less songs on said CD/Cassette).
I remember a time where you could just chat with someone, even a stranger, on a bus.
Or actually call someone to talk with them instead of texting; boy do I miss being able to actually hear tone and mood rather than guess it from words.
Oh well, what can you do?
Absolutely loved the last scene and all of the juicy symbolism. Very well done, and I agree that the baby boomers abuse FB/Twitter at least as much as Millennials.
creepy, cold and so true
love the final scene with the phone looking just like the junkies' needle
So true. Excuse me while I share this on Facebook.
No seriously; I'm glad you made this to make people aware. Technology now revolutionized society to the point where people just begin to operate like machines themselves. Real social interaction now has become obsolete, because you don't have to go outside and talk to someone face-to-face when you have Internet. Yes; technology has its massive benefits, but we can all agree its trade-offs are absolutely devastating to culture, originality of thought, and the freedom to say something without being monitored.
Good stuff; keep it up man. :)
