Viral Video Explains How ‘Social Media’ Has Made Us Less Social
By Tay Xing Wei, 05 May 2014
“We’re a generation of idiots. Smartphones and dumb people.”
In his latest production, London-based writer-director Gary Turk takes a look at how social media has made us less social.
Titled ‘Look Up’, it starts with snippets of our daily lives, and identifies how closed off we are to the world when we choose to interact with people on social media rather than face-to-face.
It also shows the process of a couple falling in love and growing old, without social media in their lives. “You don’t have to tell hundreds of what you’ve just done,” said Turk, on special moments in life.
It ends with a warning on the opportunities that we could be missing out on if we keep ‘looking down’ on our phones.
Are you guilty of spending too much time on social media?
