About That Social Media Burnout…
This article is very interesting because there is alot of trolling these days on social media. The most trolling i think is on video games these days exspecially call of duty. I also know there is alot of bullying on video games and social media. They even bully people on the game call of duty which i find its so immature of them to do that just let the kids play the game in peace.

Re: About That Social Media Burnout
Thanks for sharing! I'm not a huge gamer so I'm not up with what's new, but I do have friends who are into gaming and it's crazy how far Nintendo has come and how advanced they are today.

Re: Winds of Change
Since the same type behavior had long been promoted or even required in the workplace (always being connected, always checking email, messages, phone, etc) it really comes as no surprise then that people behave the same way in their personal space as well.

People are burned out because they can't get a minute of peace when it is thrust upon them in no matter what the form - work duties or societal pressure to be "on."

Re: About That Social Media Burnout
The Nintendo Switch certainly has a lot of expectations to fulfill. I'm not sure it will actually follow through, but it's an interesting direction.

> "I'd argue that abnormal has become the new normal in this regard." I think that was my point. The line between social media addiction and normal behavior isn't well defined anymore.

Re: About That Social Media Burnout
Wow. Mario cereal existed. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised but I was sorta joking. I do, however, remember a PAC-man cereal, so it's not crazy to believe other games had their own cereals too.

Re: About That Social Media Burnout
@MHHF1VE you thought you were kidding, didn't you? There's a very low quality video of the commercial on YouTube that I found here.

http://www.mrbreakfast.com/cereal_detail.asp?id=254

 



From: Ralston 
Introduced in 1988 




This short lived cereal contained both Super Mario Bros. cereal and Zelda Adventure cereal. The cereals were contained in two separate 7.5 ounce bags. Text on the front of the box read, "Fortified with 9 essential vitamins and minerals" and "two different natural and artificial flavors: Fruity & Berry".

A 1989 magazine ad described it this way:

Nintendo is for breakfast now. Nintendo is two cereals in one. Wow! Super Mario Bros. and Zelda too. Mix 'em, match 'em, crunch 'em, you just can't loose.

Fruit-flavored Marios, Mushrooms and Goomas. Berry-flavored Links, Hearts and Shields. Nintendo is breakfast news!

Nintendo Cereal System. If you can't beat 'em, eat 'em.
 


Nintendo Cereal System Box (Front)


The back of one box read, "Jump on the chance to win a Nintendo Entertainment System Power Set!" Another set of boxes offered four Nintendo Power Cards on the back and encouraged cereal consumers to "collect all 12."

Known Premiums: Free Action Poster; free Nintendo sticker; send-away hologram t-shirt offer.

Re: Winds of Change
The hallmark of an addiction (according to the Psychological Bible the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5))is when the behavior interferes with your "normal" functioning in other domains of your life - work, interpersonal, and ahem, social.

I'd argue that abnormal has become the new normal in this regard.

Re: About That Social Media Burnout
I'm somewhat hazy on where the line is for "kid marketing" when I think all video games are basically ads for kids. Mario advertises for his own games and all other Nintendo games at the same time.. and now I've gotta look up to see if there's a Mario cereal....
