  • How is binge-watching effecting people physically and psychologically?
    Binge-watching is physically and psychologically detrimental to people because…

    Names of Authors
    Watching multiple episodes of television series takes people through emotional highs and lows, leaving viewers emotionally taxed.
    Binge-watching reinforces the trend of instant-gratification which is already pervasive within society.
    Binge-viewing is highly likely to develop into an addiction, making TV shows and movies like drugs that companies can peddle to viewers.
    A sedentary lifestyle, as one that comes from binge-watching, leads to health complications and a quicker death.

     Greg Dillon, an associate professor at Cornell, said that by the end of binge-watching, a viewer is less receptive to the emotional and psychological ideas being presented
     Deborah Jaramillo, an assistant professor at Boston University, stated that young generations will derive pleasure from “Now-TV” instead of “Weekly-TV”
     Robert Thompson, a professor at Syracuse University, explained that after the pleasurable act of binge-viewing, the withdrawal makes one physically sad

    Ladue, Michael

     Mitch Hurwitz, head writer of Arrested Development, warned viewers against binge-watching as it would lead to “comedy fatigue.”
     Netflix is like an indulgent parent, offering unlimited sweets to a child with no limitations. In a word, this activity can be described as unhealthy.

     Binge-watching creates an emotional reliance on television and characters

     Viewers regularly become fully addicted to shows just to know what’s happening and can then talk with their friends
     Chemical imbalances in the brain during binge-viewing create a trance-like state.Long periods of inactivity are known to lead to heart disease and obesity

     The idea that TV is something that one can control at will is very attractive to the instant-gratification centric youth of today.

     Internet usage is over-taxing our current infrastructure, which would be simple enough to replace, but viewer’s desire for bandwidth availability at all times prevents this from getting off the ground.

     Constantly changing visual stimuli is impossible for the brain to ignore, according to Robert Potter, a professor at Indiana University.After about 30 minutes of binge-viewing, the brain starts to produce endorphins that reinforce the pleasurable feeling of constant stimulation.
     
     When binge-viewing is complete, the endorphin withdrawal is physically and psychologically depressing.

     Activities that take time and those that people derive great pleasure from have been displaced by the instant-gratification of binge-viewing
     Men are more invested in their binge-viewing experience.Women binge-watch to a greater extent than men
     Men are more likely to recognize the “dark” side of binge-viewing and its deleterious effects

    • Excellent work on the Because Clauses, FrisketMcBisket! I’m about to email you some more feedback!

    • One quick note about your signal phrases: in general, you did a great job combining signal phrase with citation, but you forgot the quotation marks, which are super important when you are quoting, so be careful that you use them in conjunction with your signal phrases. Also, don’t forget the page numbers in your citations, if there is a page number, which is always the case in PDF files but not usually the case if reading on the web.

  • Facebook tinkered with users’ feeds for a massive psychology experiment

    Scientists at Facebook have published a paper showing that they manipulated the content seen by more than 600,000 users in an attempt to determine whether this would affect their emotional state. The paper, “Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks,” was published in The Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences. It shows how Facebook data scientists tweaked the algorithm that determines which posts appear on users’ news feeds—specifically, researchers skewed the number of positive or negative terms seen by randomly selected users. Facebook then analyzed the future postings of those users over the course of a week to see if people responded with increased positivity or negativity of their own, thus answering the question of whether emotional states can be transmitted across a social network. Result: They can! Which is great news for Facebook data scientists hoping to prove a point about modern psychology. It’s less great for the people having their emotions secretly manipulated.Head Like A HoleIn order to sign up for Facebook, users must click a box saying they agree to the Facebook Data Use Policy, giving the company the right to access and use the information posted on the site. The policy lists a variety of potential uses for your data, most of them related to advertising, but there’s also a bit about “internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.” In the study, the authors point out that they stayed within the data policy’s liberal constraints by using machine analysis to pick out positive and negative posts, meaning no user data containing personal information was actually viewed by human researchers. And there was no need to ask study “participants” for consent, as they’d already given it by agreeing to Facebook’s terms of service in the first place.Facebook-teen-usageFacebook data scientist Adam Kramer is listed as the study’s lead author. In an interview the company released a few years ago, Kramer is quoted as saying he joined Facebook because “Facebook data constitutes the largest field study in the history of the world.” It’s a charming reminder that Facebook isn’t just the place you go to see pictures of your friends’ kids or your racist uncle’s latest rant against the government—it’s also an exciting research lab, with all of us as potential test subjects.
