How did the Monster Baby Facebook fast go? Lisa starts with her results and notices the power of habit, voyeurism and what it means to think in status updates (5:03). Ted reports about noticing loneliness and boredom but also renewed mental clarity and lessened need for comparison (7:58). Lisa mentions how Facebook serves as a space-filler and how she’s like a shark in water so she won’t end up drooling on the couch (11:11). Ted wonders if constitutional preferences make a difference on one’s relationship to social media (15:39) and the pair discuss what happens when we release ourselves from the need for recognition and actually have experiences for ourselves (20:41). They take a moment to offer a shout-out to Monster Baby listeners around the world (27:56) before wrapping things up and considering the possibility of ongoing Facebook abstinence (34:29). It’s a quick little episode but we hope an insightful one!
