What a penetrating analysis! This is a very important subject, of course, as it's such a big part of most people's day. After 4 years staying off them both, I now spend ten minutes a day following mostly art and photography on Twitter and ten minutes a day engaging with relatives on Facebook, but it took a lot of work (and unfollowing and unfriending) to turn it into a positive experience each day. But I think you're describing what hundreds of millions of people are experiencing, and showing us a path out of this mess.
