Most and least addicted countries / races to social media.
I was with a Mexican chick last night and not that she was not interested in me (got a heavy make out), but I observed her offering literally 'customer service' on what's app. She had about 7 open chats. Not other guys, but members of her family, relatives, friends etc.
I was thinking that social media have literally destroyed the real life and people are glued to the screen of their smartphone, replying immediately to small talk or checking any new crappy picture on IG.
I would say the South America countries, which have this 'social element' more intense than other places have been affected the most. I have other extreme examples as well, always from South America and Asian countries.
I'm really losing any hope for the future. What do you think, guys?

I must say Asians.

I have noticed they have mastered the art of keeping the distance from their phone to their face while walking, constant, with precision of a micron. A white woman would slightly bob, sometimes lift her eyes to see what is in front of her, a man would usually not walk with a phone at all and only use it standing or sitting. Asians, both sexes walk like there is an invisible hard fixation between the phone and their face.

At least that is how people behave in my country.

Yeah, you think white bitches are bad but Asian really take phone addiction to the next level. This is partly tied in with their cultures of always having to take a fucking selfie before going to the bathroom, and the phone being a status item.

Also, in a culture obsessed with reputation and face-saving/gaining, the phone is the ultimate tool to build the perfect façade. Asians were used to do this before smartphone, before Facebook was even coded.

In all countries I traveled lately I'd say only FSU have a slightly lesser degree of smartphone addiction. In France you also have a very small population who actively reject the smartphone but these are usually extreme leftists who are bad in a different way.

Africans are the least addicted because in most African countries, mindlessly shambling around with a phone in your hand is likely to get it snatched. Also, data bundles are quite expensive there and don't allow for true industrial-grade online attention whoring.

RE: Most and least addicted countries / races to social media.
Asians are probably up there, the number of times I've seen a group of friends sit down in a cafe or restaurant together and then immediately whip out their phones and not talk to each other is crazy.

I met one girl before who actually carried 3 smartphones with her, I could not get my head around how you would even use 3 different phones.

On the other side is my girl who almost never checks her phone, actually leaves her phone at home when we go out because "we only need one". Am I lucky?

I am a property manager, and my employer manages some refugee housing.

Yesterday I went to look at a leaking tap of a Muslim Malaysian family's apartment. It is a run down dump, and they are very poor. The wife who lives there is a 40 year old, 5 foot tall, chubby Muslim woman with a hijab. Her husband was at work.

While I was getting the plumber to fix it, I went to the lounge room and saw her sitting on the couch, mindlessly playing on her smartphone. She had the same expression as a spoilt 20 year old college girl.

Was hilarious.

Way before smart phone existed, I noticed that a lot of Chinese students had their own photo as the background on their desktop. They also had a lot of pictures of themselves in their rooms. I've never seen that with any other race.

I don't think it is so much about countries anymore as it is about the countryside.

I've met people from Greenland and Faroe islands though and the men and women didn't seem to give much shit about social media and were very down to earth. Probably cause everyone is kind of connected to one another anyway and it's hard to fake social status there through social media.

But the people there are usually pretty ugly.

The most addicted must of course be the US. Twitter seems to still be massive there for example (meanwhile who gives a shit about it in Europe apart from journalists?) and lots of new platforms comes out there. They got this wacky celebrity culture there where everyone has to follow what celebrities and dull bimbos like Kardashians are doing at any given moment.

RE: Most and least addicted countries / races to social media.
I'm in Mexico and with the younger gens it's pretty endemic. In the gym today i really notice it, people seem literally incapable of just pausing between sets and not checking their phones. Then every time i go in there is always some thot pr musclebound buck getting photgraphed working out.

The change in the last decade that this technology has brought, has been horrific. The younger gens who are growing up with this as totally normal, are constantly seeking validation of one form or other. All these apps are designed to doll out little dopamine hits like cheese to rats, and these mongs are just tapping away, seeking a like, a message, a match, a retweet, a follow, whatever the platforms 'cheese' may be...

And all the while the real rulers take a tighter control of our society, public discourse, the legal system, governments, and all the people care about are their own little completely standardised and normalised narcissism projects. Utterly distracted. It's fucking hideous...

In answer to the question, i think it's pretty much across the board in the West now. I get the feeling the further away from nature someone's life is, the tighter a grip this stuff has. If you're regularly around the glory of the natural world, why would you be checking instagram/twitter/facebook etc... That being said, whenever i go to holiday / tourists destinations, it seems every fucker has his phone or selfie stick out, and is just consuming it all, using the beauty of a location purely as a backdrop or photo set, so they can post pics and scream 'I LIVE AN INTERESTING LIFE!!! LOOK AT ME!!! PLEASE VALIDATE MY EXISTENCE!!!'...

This stuff is the black pill for me. I lived in some beautiful cities over the years. Way back before this age, you'd sit in a beautiful town square and have a few drinks with a friend, just soaking it all up. In the last decade places like Prague are just used as photo sets. Everywhere you go tourists walk around, endlessly taking pictures. Would they be doing so if there were no online stage to present it all? Would they fuck. I remember going on holiday with 24 pics of film, and rarely finishing them. These days i'd be amazed if a lot of people take under 500 in a weeks holiday.

I really miss that kind of thing. You don't even have to go too far back, as recently as 10 years ago the habit of documenting everything wasn't as widespread. These days there are a lot of places you can't even take a moment to appreciate, you always have to move over so someone can take a picture (and it's considered disrespectful if you don't).

This chinese guy was sliding in the dm's and not looking both ways:

Seriously, you don't know what hit you when deal with 21-26 year old Asian girls and watch them hammer away on the iPhone's. My buddy brought three Japanese ones over the other day, i swear they were texting eachother. Its a problem.

Also, I'm not really sure what sliding in the dms means.
