    By the time he left the stage, he jokingly said Mark Zuckerberg will probably block his account after reading this:

    • "When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, 'I'm not on social media.' And I would say, 'OK. You know, you will be.' And then they would say, 'No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.' And I would say, ... 'We'll get you eventually.'"

    • "I don't know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and ... it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other ... It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."

    • "The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, ... was all about: 'How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'"

    • "And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you ... more likes and comments."

    • "It's a social-validation feedback loop ... exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you're exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology."

    • "The inventors, creators — it's me, it's Mark [Zuckerberg], it's Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it's all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway."

    So are Millennials paranoid about acceptance, owing to the short-term feedback loop and dopamine hits, and that is why they need "safe spaces"?

    I use social media to project a more stylish and lavish lifestyle than I really have. I only post pictures of me doing cool shit and me humble bragging... it’s all for the women and people who secretly hate me but pretend to be my friends.

    I’ve got videos of me in hurricane Harvey, of me in the direct path of the eclipse, videos of me donating food, at the Grand Canyon, near Area 51, posts of me in Tokyo... and a few inspirational quotes.

    lol. I thinks is all hilarious.
