Social Media Just a Fad

Below is a video interview with Brandeis Psychology Professor Peter Descioli and Wired magazine contributing editor Jeff Howe.

It’s a fun and enlightening video about social media, and it’s funnier since it’s being discussed by adults. (Favorite line: 600 friends!?!)

The conclusion seems to be that this technology mania is just a phase, and will inspire a counter-revolution…what do you guys think?

Two noteworthy things about this interview:

    The Brandeis professor is not the most awkward person in it.

    The Brandeis professor is not the one who brings up Shabbat.
