Does social media change your brain

Interesting video from the ASAP Science guys this week on how social media changes the brain of users. Obviously need to look at the underlying research to make your own conclusions, but it seems plausible at least.

On a side note – I can definitely confirm having experienced Phantom Vibration Syndrome. My pocket feels like the phone is ringing at random times day and night but actually hasn’t – Weird.

Following from this I read an article on how technology is shaping human evolution at Make use of. Not going to push any personal beliefs but it raises some questions for reflection and thinking, about where we are going and whether we are ok or not with that.
