Most of us are inundated with notifications vying for our attention, and when we aren't, we wish we were. It's not uncommon to feel either a weight from the amount of social media connections, or an emptiness due to their quality. My internet friend, Ian Nichols, joins me to talk about why after more than a decade he deleted his Facebook account. We discuss the early days of Facebook, the dopamine hits we get from "likes," and what kind of social interactions are most valuable.
