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.
A like or a comment on a post sends users "a little dopamine hit", he said, encouraging them to post again. "It's a social-validation feedback loop ... exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you're exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology".

"But it's less about Facebook, less about any one platform, and it's more about understanding what people are doing with these platforms, what kids are doing. Perhaps it's just wistful thinking on my part, but it seems to me that it's Zuckerberg who should be anxious that more and more people might start carrying out this blocking all on their own", he commented on his blog.
