It's strange that you even have such a question.

Of course, reading the tape is clogging your brain with information you don't need. Sometimes this information can help in the beginning of a dialogue, sometimes not.

Constructive decision: first you decide that you want to start a dialogue, then get acquainted with the feed.

Durov's opinion does not reveal any new meanings. Tolstoy at one time was indignant: people prefer healthy food (reading books of the cleverest people) garbage (consumption of tabloid writings). The same applies today to the so-called. news that replaced books.

Answer 3

Yes, I agree 100%

My friend, a psychiatrist, said so .... if you want to earn schizophasia in a short time, be constantly on social networks, read the "news" feed.

the format of information destabilizes the brain, and in the future it will be more and more difficult for a person to formulate thoughts.

Any information should be "decomposed" into shelves, structured and have logical threads.

Social networks it's a brain thinner!

Answer 4

Yes, I agree. Thus, you are wasting your time in vain and looking at someone else's life - that is, in fact, at other people's lives.

It is much easier to select several media for yourself with the formats that are more convenient for you and read the news there, and spend your free time on useful things and yourself, but there are few places where there is media without garbage news.

Durov is a good fellow that he came up with telegrams, because the developers at the end ruined his tape in VK. everything outside the chronology became a sea of ​​advertising. If earlier it was possible to browse at breakfast, now I have given up altogether in favor of watching useful videos on youtube of cognitive ala nauchnopok or a couple of suitable channels just in telegrams, where there is almost no spam ..

if anyone is interested I can recommend it to you, you will save a lot of time and you will not fill your head with unnecessary information. here is one of my favorite channels - https://t-do.ru/sotoch

Another https://t.me/lifehackerru or https://t.me/tinkoffjournal and here is fun https : //t.me/uxlive

I hope it will come in handy

Answer 5

from a flow control point of view,

it would be correct to create feed sets,

i.e. generate news feeds from different groups.

and when there is only one feed, of all that you subscribe to ... yes, a mess.

Answer 6
July, 2021

I do not agree. Sociological research (including our own in the fields) shows that posts and recommendations of friends on social networks are the main motivating factor in making decisions about purchases and leisure activities. I agree with my colleagues above that it largely depends on filtering the friend feed.

Answer 7
July, 2021

Pavel Durov, sorry for the expression, is subscribed to MDK.

And then says something about brain clogging?
But seriously, there is such a function to hide the news of a friend.
And if you are annoyed with this rubbish, just click on this cross.

Answer 8
July, 2021

In my opinion, brain clogging is what Pavel Durov is doing with his telegram and regular vysing on the topic of its safety and inevitability.

Answer 9
July, 2021

Obviously, this statement of Paul should be viewed solely as a partisan advertising campaign.

The practice of reading the feed in Telegram and in social networks is different, but one cannot say where there is more garbage information: in 10 unread channels or one friend feed.

But in one thing, Paul very accurately catches the trend: a modern person is overloaded with information and must very clearly filter it. To do this, you don't even have to remove from friends - you can just subscribe.

Answer 10
July, 2021

I absolutely agree, although you need to remember that there are different friends. If we are talking about classmates / classmates, peers, random people - they usually post little that is suitable and worthy of attention. If you have public figures in your friends, intellectuals and prudent minds and all that, then it's still okay, you can live.

I found a compromise for myself. I do not delete my friends, I regularly visit the pages of the most interesting of them and check their updates. But every time I add a new friend, be sure to check the box so as not to receive his updates in the feed. This way, my feed is not cluttered with MDK pictures and smart quotes, but I am aware of the people I am interested in.

Answer 11
July, 2021

Yes, I agree. Most of the publics / groups to which people are subscribed are inherently useless communities that do not provide "food" for thought, but only create a passive perception of information. Hence the question: why is this necessary? If you are really interested in something that can develop abilities or increase knowledge, then these communities deserve your subscription. On the other hand, this is your life, if you like being in some dependence on the useless waste of time reading the news, which will absolutely not affect your self-development and life in general, then continue in the same spirit.

As for friends, the situation is similar. Sit back and spend time reading someone's posts or viewing photos, so that later either you forget about it or gossip. How will this affect the success of your tomorrow? No way. Of course, this does not apply to people you follow specifically to follow their lives and strive to be like or something like that.

You can do a little experiment: unsubscribe from almost all of your groups, which are of no benefit to you. Very soon you will notice that you have more time for something other than flipping through the tape in VK. (Because most often people read the news feed for some kind of jokes, gossip, pictures). Thus, the time that appears can be spent on a task that really deserves your attention.

Answer 12
July, 2021

It depends on how to read. I have been scrolling through the news feed for a long time almost without reading, the fact is that not all acquaintances or friends write to the messenger. Then, even at the institute, I got into the habit of reading everything "sideways". In addition, personally, apart from the news feed, I have practically no one else to communicate with (this has been the case for the last three years). News about Russian-American relations is relevant because of my daughter and her American husband, although they, unlike me, hardly watch them - they have no time, they work. When your head gets tired, you can just turn off the computer. In the election campaign, when Assange dumped all the materials on youtube, at one point I simply could not stand it and left for the dacha, from all the published nightmare. I am personally not interested in reading novels - they also "clog my head". Historical materials are also on the tape. It is not the memory block that is suffering. He has a fairly large margin of strength, if not drinking or smoking. Old connections die off, and new ones are created. From meaningless or meaningful sitting at the computer, those parts of the brain that are responsible for vision, i.e. the back of the head and if you regularly have pain in the back of your head and your eyesight falls, then it is better not only to stop reading the feed and news, but to stop reading something from the computer altogether.

Pasha will fuck and promote messengers.

Answer 14
July, 2021

I usually do not read the news feed carefully. What's the point? I'd rather just go to the page of a person or to a community that interests me.

And often browsing the news feed is really useless.

Answer 15
July, 2021

I agree, I myself have unsubscribed from friends who like to post selfies with the caption "Good morning everyone!" or from the series "I went to the store and there is a rain that's sadness". Well, their reposts were also not willing to read.

On the other hand, why add as friends those whose life is not interesting to me? Now I'm not adding)

Answer 16
July, 2021

For those whose friend list has 50 people, such a feed will be useful, but if you already have 1500 friends and the same number of subscriptions, then it turns into a problem. For example, I don’t have so much time to scroll through the endless feed and hide uninteresting characters.

Answer 17
July, 2021

It seems to me that complaints about garbage in the news feed are a banal inability to properly organize and compose it. The secret here is simple: don't subscribe to shit, and then there will be practically no shit in your feed (alas, it is impossible to completely get rid of it). Today VK you can easily find dozens of really good publics for every taste and color.

Don't like your friends' posts? Hide them from the news, the VK functionality itself gives you such a function, you just need to make two clicks. In my opinion, all that Durov is now saying in favor of messengers is nothing more than an attempt to promote Telegram. Personally, I do not use instant messengers and do not consider them to be something revolutionary.

Answer 18
July, 2021

Yes, I agree. I was especially depressed by the reposts of girls I knew, who in an hour could post half of the publics with quotes on their wall, but then I unsubscribed from all their news, so now I only have in my news feed what is interesting to me, that is, no vanilla stories and quotes and other garbage.

Answer 19
July, 2021

Yes, a lot of fucking stuff, which consists of monotonous reposts, photos, dull vidos. And a lot of time is wasted on this and causes a rather rigid dependence. Especially in the morning, the type of tape-overwhelming
