What was once said about television has made its way into social media: too much of it makes us lazy. At least, that is the theory Edward De Bono has, according to News.com.au.
â€œThereâ€™s a danger in the internet and social media,â€ says Mr De Bono.
â€œThe notion that information is enough, that more-and-more information is enough, that you donâ€™t have to think, you just have to get more information – gets very dangerous.â€
The author and philosopher says that people take the information they receive through social media at face value.
â€œThat we can get information our computer and our communication systems are getting better and better, people say â€˜I donâ€™t have to think, information will make my decision for meâ€™, and that completely rules out creativity using the information in a different way, or new way,â€ he says.
â€œ(Social media causes) laziness â€“ that we just feel weâ€™ll just get more information and we donâ€™t need to have ideas ourselves â€“ weâ€™ll get ideas from someone else, we donâ€™t need to look at the data weâ€™ll just see what someone else has said and so on.â€
