Scroll-hole

A little irony in posting about logging off from social media on social media, but still worth our consideration…

SCROLL HOLE: The uncontrollable act of endlessly and mindlessly scrolling through social media feeds. 🌸

The similarity to “down the rabbit hole dis not escape me!

Our brain likes to finish acts and uses that as a sign to stop. We finish the food on our plate, we finish our working hours, we finish our exercise after the allotted time.🌸

With social media, and endless episodes of Netflix, this cue for brain to stop is absent. This is simply not natural for our minds!🌸

We know why social media is invested in creating these scroll holes (more revenue). But why are we invested? It’s because we engage the dopamine-seeking reward loop, which keeps us in this black hole.

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
