The Problem – Center For Humane Technology

The extractive attention economy is tearing apart our shared social fabric.

The companies that created social media and mobile tech have benefited our lives enormously. But even with the best intentions, they are under intense pressure to compete for attention, creating invisible harms for society.

Today’s tech platforms are caught in a race to the bottom of the brain stem to extract human attention. It’s a race we’re all losing.
The result: addiction, social isolation, outrage, misinformation, and political polarization.

These aren’t disconnected issues. They are part of human downgrading.
