Social and Digital conditioning
What is it? Conditioning means... Under the influence... It is the result of a culture, an ideology and belief system.
What does it mean for us? Basically, it's like being hypnotized, without even knowing!
Social media and big internet companies create needs and desires, to influence our behaviors and therefore reach specific economic goals. The worse you feel, the more you buy. Easy. Remember these beautiful adds, with the perfect family or perfect body or perfect skin... Well they show you what your life could be or should be, instantly you start comparing yourself and think that you should also have the perfect six pack partner, perfect waist, 7 figures pay check and 30 pounds less. Magically they have the solution for you to reach your goals! if you buy their products, cars, medicine... Aren't they lovely?
No. they are not. They are manipulating you. Making sure you feel less than, making sure you click on the adds, and making sure you buy things you don't need!
It feeds the short term economy, short term corporate revenues, with no understanding on the long term consequences on our society and on us. In business, a company is successful purely based on financial success - the actual human and environmental impact isn’t part of the picture. It is time to change this system. Our choices are ours. With self reflection, self love, meaning and (real connection), we can create a new system.

Attention grabing industry : social media and media on internet.
What is it ?
Algorithms : In his book The Master Algorithm, Pedro Domingos gives a simple definition: “An algorithm is a sequence of instructions telling a computer what to do.”
For most people tough, the term algorithm represent the operations that control our social media news feeds.
Our feeds on Facebook and Instagram, our Google and Amazon search, News site ads and that's just to name a few examples, are all filtered by algorithms.
So what we read, listen to and look at are indirectly chosen for us by programs, computers and tech companies.
The last decade, algorithms took over to serve advertising. That's how our social media platforms generates revenues. For the big internet companies, we are data. Facebook, which has over two billion members, has been accused by some of its employees of manipulating our emotions and decisions. A former Facebook executive said last year in an interview : "Your behavior, you do not realize, is programmed."
Algorithms help social media and internet companies to get us spend more time on their platform and click on the maximum adds. And this is how we went from connection to profit. And from casual usage to addiction.
