- Obsessed with likes on Instagram and infatuated with Selfies on Facebook
Chasing customized Bucket Lists clicking a thousand pictures, but never bothering to look;
Sacrificing precious moments and memories at the altar of ‘stories’ and posts
To barricade one’s existence within the shackled boundaries of Skyping guests and hosts.
2. Going gaga over Alexa and unsuspectingly enslaved by the seductive Siri
Unwilling to recognise that in the world of capitalism, nothing comes free;
Fretting over friends lists all the while losing sleep over followers
Unashamed devotees of Social Media, which keeps feeding on believers.
3. A willing prey to clever algorithms that obliterate all notions of free will
Becoming creatures of habit and fast losing the original gift of skill;
Humans becoming robots allergic to empathy
Reduced to 280 characters on Twitter, what a pity!
