"The Social Media Generation"

This is an adaptation from the original comic "Marc Maron: The social media generation" by Zen Pencils.
http://zenpencils.com/comic/129-marc-maron-the-social-media-generation/

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 absolutely applaud this and would love to plaster this on social media everywhere... shame I deleted it all prior to this. Honestly, my eyes and mind are more open, I have more to look forward to each day. This society, this culture, it is truly frightening. How heavily reliant we are on social media and technology. What have we become, and where are we headed? A really fucking wonderful animation worthy of more than just a front page place.

This is an amazing piece of art!
As well as sad because it's true. I can understand why people like "social" media outlets, but not when it depletes their everyday participation in the world around them. It's so ironic how these technologies are supposed to link people together, yet it makes everything so impersonal.
Anyway, this really is a great flash, and it's hopeful to know that there are other people who realize how detrimental overuse of these medias can be.
Great work!

Getting high on drugs in one cubicle, getting high on FB in the other. This would be fun if it wasn't so sadly true, the world really is like this. Everywhere you go people are just glaring at blaring screens, not really aware of the sceneries around them, no longer interacting like normal people. It's a generation that's become social from a distance. Great idea; a great way to introduce it. Keep it going!
