Podcast: How to think about social media

by | May 14, 2024 | Podcast

On this episode, we chat about how we use and think about social media. We cover what the problem is with social media (if there even is one), how the “novelty bias” hijacks our attention as we use it, and tactics to use to keep social media contained.

Topics covered include:

  • The books we’re reading (and loving);
  • Impulsiveness and procrastination;
  • How social media algorithms come down to “bodies and comparing lifestyles”;
  • Ardyn’s incredibly wholesome Instagram feed;
  • “Stimulation loops” and the “novelty bias”;
  • Crowding out social media;
  • Extracting more meaning out of social media;
  • Putting guardrails in place to waste less time;
  • Time cues on your phone.
