Is social media evolving into an antisocial medium? Days after one of its former execs argued that the answer is yes, Facebook published a post addressing the issue. "I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works," Chamath Palihapitiya, who once served as vice president for growth at Facebook, told an audience at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. "The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we've created are destroying how society works."

Social media is a cancer, it gets people locked into bubbles of lies from various bad sources. They think they are tuning into the world, when really they are tuning into more fakeness. I deleted my facebook account 2 years ago, life is much better without it. Twitter, instagram etc..., all a load of rubbish

What best describes your attitude toward social networks and politics?
The value of engaging in serious political discourse outweighs the negatives.
Most of the political conversations seem overheated and ignorant.
Social networks provide a lot of very good political information from reliable sources.
Almost every political post I see is skewed or totally fake.
Political interactions on social networks simply mirror those in the real world.
Social networks remove inhibitions, bringing out the worst in people and politics.
