Billboard, Fake, and Head: DELETE ALL YOUR SOCIAL
 MEDIA ACCOUNTS
 WARNS THE FOUNDING FATHER
 OF VIRTUAL REALITY
 imgflip.com
In a new explosive interview, Silicon Valley tech pioneer and creator of the virtual reality 'avatar' Jaron Lanier tells people to delete your social media accounts due to the strong correlation between persistent social media usage and a dramatic societal rise in depression, anger, and anxiety that he says is the result of internet-induced modified forms of behavior. The warning comes in the wake of his new book which details how the creators of social media and the early engineers behind the internet "foolishly laid the foundations for global monopolies." Jaron Lanier is best known as a founding father of the field of virtual reality and throughout his polymath career has written extensively on human-computer interaction, including most recently in his book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now. Lanier explained in a recent UK Channel 4 interview: When you watch the television the television isn't watching you. When you see the billboard the billboard isn't seeing you... When you use these new designs β€” social media, search, YouTube β€” when you see these things, you're being observed constantly and algorithms are taking that information and changing what you see next. According to Lanier's bio, he coined the term 'Virtual Reality' (VR) and in the early 1980s founded VPL Research, the first company to sell VR products. In the late 1980s he led the team that developed the first implementations of multi-person virtual worlds using head mounted displays, as well as the first "avatars," and developed the first widely used software platform architecture for immersive virtual reality applications. As he defiantly asserts on his personal website, Lanier himself has "no social media accounts at all and all purported ones are fake." He's elsewhere said that most internet and social media pioneers in Silicon Valley "have regrets right now" after perfecting what is essentially mass human behavioral engineering and that that internet addiction is not only ruining people's lives but the political process as well. This is what I could call almost a stealthy addiction. It's a statistical addiction.
