There's an interesting piece on Scientific American about the effects of social media on society and our collective social connections. I thought this bit summed it up nicely:

This is the new norm. We’ve been fooled into believing we’re more connected, informed, productive, creative and happy. But in reality, this kind of social reciprocity eats away at our norms and values, and rebuilds them in harmful ways. As a former Facebook executive put it, “The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works.”
