One of Facebook founders revealed that SNS is “designed to deprive attention and free time of people.” Actually many researchers point out that many users of Facebook or Instagram become unhappy by using it.
As founding CEO of Facebook says “it is designed to exploit a vulnerability in human psychology" in the third article, SNS destroys “human intimacy” and people get caught by a loop where they want more “likes” and “favorable comments.” The former CEO warns that this is intentionally designed to “exploit a vulnerability in human psychology.”
The number of “likes” or favorable comments would be social approval for people who have not confirmed their identity. In a word, “likes” has an effect of dopamine, intracerebral narcotics.
To put it in the other way around, it is very dangerous to depend on such environment before people confirm their identity and they won’t think with their own head.
The website manager of the second article, Mr. In Deep, describes such situation as completion of a society consisting of a group of Sheeple or a group of Lobotomia, people who are given psychosurgery of lobotomy. Facebook and twitter are tools used by CIA and the ruling elites intend to fence humanity because they consider people as sheep. We can say that these tools are well made in this sense.
It seems that Mr. In Deep was originally cautious about SNS because he felt that it is “very dangerous.” The comment of the person who engaged in founding Facebook has proved that his fear was a fact. I never use Twitter or Facebook because I sensuously feel they are dangerous. To put it simply, I “can’t get along with” them. A tool receives the consciousness or vibrations of a person who makes a connection with. I feel bad intentions from such tools. Therefore, I stay out of them.
I feel that this world is full of bad intentions and it is extremely contaminated. I don’t know what I should get my hand on. Actually, those who created these tools with bad intentions will be deprived of the connection with the universe and pay for what they did in the form of falling into deep Darkness. It is on-going judgment on the level of physical body.

Founding CEO of Facebook warns the SNS hurts brain
Mr. Sean Parker, founding chief executive officer (CEO) of Facebook, warned that SNS is designed to deprive people of as much attention and leisure time as possible.
Mr. Parker says: “that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you ... more likes and comments." He points out that it's a social-validation feedback loop.”
Mr. Parker says that SNS “exploits a vulnerability in human psychology."
He also provides his perspective: “It literally changes your relationship with society, with each other ... It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains.”
Facebook was founded by Mr. Mark Zuckerberg along with fellow Harvard College students Mr. Dustin Moskovitz, Mr. Chris Hughes and others in 2004. Mr. Sean Parker, Napster cofounder, became founding CEO but left the company in 2005. Mr. Zuckerberg currently operates as its chairman and chief executive officer.

From Interview by U.S. Media ACIOS dated November 9, 2017
My child is in the sixth grade. I share a Mac personal computer with my family members.
I say to my child: “I’m not going to get you a smartphone even when you become a junior or senior high school student.” The child has a mobile phone equipped with monitoring service, which allows him to contact with only those addressed to the phone, including parents.
I am such a spoiled or silly parent that hardly says no to my child. However, SNS is the only exceptional case.
The reason is complicated. When SNS made its first appearance, I had a vague idea about it: “I feel it is obviously very dangerous to enter a system to which human psychology is applied.
I mean that people will be addicted to SNS by “desire to be evaluated” or “illusion of fear of loneliness.”
However, as seen in the article above, the founding CEO of Facebook says: “that is designed to exploit human psychology and achieved its purpose.”
I’d like to give a brief explanation of the people in the article. All of them are young men in their thirties.
He is an entrepreneur who cofounded Napster, Plaxo and Causes and served as the first president of Facebook. He left Facebook in 2005.
Mark Elliot Zuckerberg
He cofounded Facebook and serves as CEO now.
He cofounded Instagram, Intrnet-based photo-sharing application and service.
All of them know a “vulnerability in human psychology” and succeeded in applying it to program. And as a result, Facebook and Instagram have become the biggest service ever.
It appears that the future will lead to “decrease productivity in strange society” as Mr. Sean Parker puts it.
That’s because you can realize it when you look at people in trains or in the street as the landscape. They not only “lack productivity” but they are deprived of “free time to think vaguely” which they used to have and as a result, they no longer think of anything.
I think this is the first time that people never get to think in human history. I am not exaggerating. It is really “for the first time.”
With just a little thinking, we used to get to understand. However, there is no portion of “to think” now. Thinking no longer belongs to themselves.
I feel that a society consisting of a group of Sheeple or Lobotomia, who are given surgery of lobotomy, is nearing completion.
Sean Parker, the founding president of Facebook, unloads on Facebook "exploiting" human psychology
Parker's I-was-there account provides priceless perspective in the rising debate about the power and effects of the social networks, which now have scale and reach unknown in human history.
"When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, 'I'm not on social media.' And I would say, 'OK. You know, you will be.' And then they would say, 'No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.'
And I would say, ... 'We'll get you eventually.'"
"I don't know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and ... it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other ... It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."
"The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, ... was all about: 'How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'"
"And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you ... more likes and comments."
"It's a social-validation feedback loop ... exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you're exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology."
"The inventors, creators — it's me, it's Mark [Zuckerberg], it's Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it's all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway."
