Social Media Obsession

"The social media cult of celebrity is not something our students compartmentalize.  It is not contained to weekends. It is not what television once was - a part-time distraction or indulgence or unifying factor (when everyone watched the World Series, for instance) or even educational tool (when there were educational series like Ken Burns's The Civil War). Social media is not like that; it is an obsession."

- Jeremy S. Adams, Hollowed Out: A Warning About America's Next Generation
