At this point, it’s no mystery that social media platforms have really just become a test to see who can come up with the strongest algorithms for engagement and retention among its user base. What consumers see as watching their favorite videos on TikTok or liking a few photos on Instagram has become a massive business for data and technology companies, each one trying to best the other when it comes to serving its users the right types and combinations of organic content and paid advertising to make sure they keep coming back multiple times per day, everyday.

Social Media Addiction is a Rising Concern
There’s also no denying the impact it’s had on the world to this point. “Algorithm” has become a dirty word after companies like Cambridge Analytica have utilized Facebook’s and Google’s data tracking and learning to feed an endless stream of lifestyle ads, political messaging, and strategic disinformation to ensure that people buy into one idea over another — often to the point of shaping the geopolitical climate of an entire nation.

Utilizing AI to Improve Knowledge and Training Across the Globe
But in a world where social media addiction is a rising concern, modern society’s dependence on artificial intelligence within their smartphones, laptops, and tablets could also be an incredible way to improve academic knowledge and vocational training across the globe. It would be a massive undertaking, but utilizing those same addictive algorithms to teach and improve the education and job skills of millions of users — many of whom currently remain hypnotized in ways that could be detrimental to the development of society — is the light at the end of the tunnel from the swamp of time-wasting social media activities.
