"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.
You did a good job capturing the scary-true effect that these networks have on our society.
Additionally, the thing about "likes." Some people treat and refer to them like a precious commodity, mentioning them as if they're important in some way. There are even Facebook pages created for nothing more than "likes," where people trick people into commenting, sharing or liking their shit, just for the empty satisfaction.
It's also prevalent on Youtube--there are people who post just for people to "like" their comment. "Like my comment if [something something]!"
Or then there's the common need for others' approval on something:
"Anyone else notice/think/do [some thing pertaining to the video]?"
I've even seen, or had people say "lol ur just jealous because they have more likes than you," projecting their piddly sense of value onto someone else.
Glad other people realize how disgracefully attention seeking and egotistical it is to be literally glued to social networking, bragging about needless mundane activities, look at me, i do things in real life! i'm social! I feel like I am the only one out there who doesn't have his lead looking down at a fucking smart phone. Great work all round, from the artwork, voice acting, and overall tone.
What if I told you that I don't have facebook and twitter.
I would liked to see more, a bit short in my opinion.
OH THE IRONY !!!
you have facebook youtube twitter and google+ links at at the end of the animation.
You just copied the comic without actually representing the message.
A thought provoking portrayl of the dangers of instant gratification and acceptance via social media. I always enjoy your animation. Keep up the good work.
