How about we stop calling Facebook a "social network" and just call it what it is: an advertising network.

Same for google. It's an advertising network that happen to also have a search engine and a browser to spy on users.

Companies claim to sell us happiness, but really, they know the truth: They know that we are more valuable to them if we're unhappy. So they don't want to sell us happiness. They don't want us to be happy. They want us to be forever unhappy and keep buying their products.

@narF Je crois que ce qu'il faut, c'est simplement réapprendre à s'émerveiller par les choses simples de la vie : Un coucher de soleil, la visite d'un ami ou la famille, se promener en forêt, etc.
