Sean Parker said that people like himself and Mark Zuckerberg had just one goal it mind when it came to these platforms: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible’
The answer, according to Parker, was by exploiting human weakness.
Parker said that he now sees himself as ‘something of a conscientious objector’ to social media, despite the fact that he owes most of his massive $2.4 billion fortune to his involvement with Facebook.
He also joked that Mark Zuckerberg would probably end up blocking him in the wake of his comments.
