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.

Figured this much a while back. And have actually started to use less and less Facebook until the day I stop using it. (I have a twitter account that only use to know about the status of my college. i.e: there's a hurracane and classes get canceled. Other than that, I don't use it.)

Anyway. Really good animation, loved the voice and, as many others, thought it was rather short. Keep up the good work!

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.
