I’ve Got a Theory…

My hypothesis suggests that social media engagement and macroeconomic conditions are inversely related.

Meaning: as people become more professionally engaged they will naturally engage less with social media.

Yes, this means the boom in Facebook and Twitter activiy etc over the past 4 years was more about people coping with interesting times than anything else.

How can we test my hypothesis?
– U.S. underemployment drops below 18%?
– Other options?

Opt-In to Happiness

“All it’s cost me are LOLs and LIKES and YOUTUBE VIDEOS OF EXPLOSIONS and news about startups. It’s more than a fair trade–it’s a no brainer. And I think almost anyone with a job based on information can set up a similar life that is just as enjoyable. It might take a few years, but you can’t do it while you’re rotting online reading junk content. Get on, make the most meaningful information and connections, and then get offline. Then, live purposefully towards happiness. Because I’ve never met a person who spent their days and nights online that was happy as I am right now.” – Brian Lam
