Description: The vast majority of Americans feel social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram are addictive to them personally, are contributing to a national health crisis and should be regulated the way potentially harmful substances such as alcohol and tobacco are, according to a flash poll conducted late last week by MediaPost and Pollfish.
Date: Oct 12, 2021
Questions for discussion:
- What do you suppose the poll results mean in terms of social behavior and the future operation of these businesses?
- Do you expect control and regulation to mostly come from the individual, the industry, or government?
