A timely call-to-arms from a Silicon Valley pioneer. You might have trouble imagining life without your social media accounts, but virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier insists that we're better off without them. InTen Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, Lanier, who participates in no social media, offers powerful and personal reasons for all of us to leave these dangerous online platforms. Lanier's reasons for freeing ourselves from social media's poisonous grip include its tendency to bring out the worst in us, to make politics terrifying, to trick us with illusions of popularity and success, to twist our relationship with the truth, to disconnect us from other people even as we are more "connected" than ever, to rob us of our free will with relentless targeted ads. How can we remain autonomous in a world where we are under continual surveillance and are constantly being prodded by algorithms run by some of the richest corporations in history that have no way of making money other than being paid to manipulate our behavior? How could the benefits of social media possibly outweigh the catastrophic losses to our personal dignity, happiness, and freedom? Lanier remains a tech optimist, so while demonstrating the evil that rules social media business models today, he also envisions a humanistic setting for social networking that can direct us toward a richer andfuller way of living and connecting with our world.… (més)

One interesting thing he briefly mentions is his abandoned belief (and maybe collectively, our culture's belief) in tech entrepreneurs as icons who will transform (and save) the world. Naomi Klien talks about this too in NO IS NOT ENOUGH, about how we put our faith in the super wealthy (one of her examples was Bill Gates) to help the rest of the not-so-prosperous world (through charity, through their projects and products, etc.).

My high opinion of this book is probably partly based on confirmation bias since I deleted my social media accounts years ago (with the exception of Goodreads, obviously), but I think everyone should read this and actually consider doing what the title says. ( )

Although the author properly diagnoses corporate social media's detrimental effects, and—as an industry insider—deftly reveals the emperor's nakedness, his analysis falls short of critiquing the economic forces that inevitability converge on such exploitative systems. As such, his prescription—exit while you can—comes across as naively inadequate, driven by nostalgia for a 90s golden-age of internet culture

Still, he provides an invaluably critical perspective on a timely subject.

I particularly enjoyed an all-too-brief series of passages on the emptiness of "AI" as a marketing term. ( )

Wow what a book y’all. So many really great, interesting points. So many bizarre arguments about religion and how social media is a pseudo religion. First half, four stars; second half, a very confused one star. ( )

Actually the author is totally right. ( )
