According to medium, these are some warnings signs of you falling into Tittytainment traps:
- Passive information absorption, rather than active thinking
- Superficiality rather than humanity value
- Entertainment becomes an instinct rather than a choice.
Beware of tittytainment, we are constantly trap in a universe of low-cost entertainment that could hinder our critical thinking.
We are bombarded by these tittytainment daily without us realising it. For example:
- Businesses are using mass-marketing tactics to spread urban and excessive materialism, instead of humanity values.
- Social media companies are hiring “influencers” or “KOL” to promote products to the audience and instant buying.
- Entertainment industry is producing exaggerating content that make the people losing the ability to question or fact check. That is why fake news spread faster than the true news!
- Social media is dominating the news media, allowing false information without taking legal responsibilities. People are using the internet, defamation, rumors, violence, to spread their emotion but not facts, because this is a more instant method of being heard.
- Phone manufactures, in alliance with social media and software developers, are constantly feeding people with information passively.
- Video streaming companies are providing the content they wish people to see, and the built-in auto-play next episode invents a new fashion of binge-watching, doing nothing for the whole day!
So, how to avoid the tittytainment?
We need to continuous learning, and improve ourselves. Otherwisour critical thinking will diminishes as we spent most of our time steering on the screen without learning anything.
2. Don’t fall into “little satisfaction”
People goes shopping and buy a lot of small unneccesary stuff or items, just because those items are put on sale for example: buy 1 free 1, or 50%. These small money could buy you a book or improve yourself through classes or some courses, or even you could buy stocks or make some small investment.
3. Be competitive
YOU should not settled. A healthy competition is good to drive us for continuous learning and continuous improvement. This will help to create a competitive environment where you will constantly push your limits and go beyond.
