My attention span has been severely impacted. That’s why I got rid of Twitter and I never downloaded TikTok.Do you guys ever worry about your attention spans rotting away?
Or even the addictive qualities of multiple short dopamine spikes?
Tiktok videos are already short to begin with. And the scrolling cuts it even shorter . The need to be stimulated every 6 seconds like lab subject is kinda dystopian.
I'm not a tiktokker myself, but ive seen folks at work laugh 6 times in the same timespan of a minute, while having scrolled through dozens of videos in that same minute. It's kinda bizarre seeing it from the outside looking in. And it Reminds a little bit of that couch and TV scene from Idiocracy.
