Social dopamime hit

The social web amplifies what is essentially human nature, and most (if not all) of us want a momentary titilation, a quick dopamine hit that comes from a listicle or some random set of photos. We all for a few brief seconds want to feel happy by watching a video on Upworthy. And we like, share, retweet or favorite what we know is essentially, the non-essential. Whether it is Mickey-D or Shake Shack, we know it is not good for your body, but we still chow down on that stuff.
