It's no secret that social media has changed how we consume and process information. With the constant stream of notifications, updates, and distractions, it's increasingly difficult to focus on a single task or piece of content for an extended period. Decreasing attention span has been widely debated and studied in recent years, and the evidence suggests that social media may be at least partially to blame.
One of the primary reasons for decreasing attention span is the way that social media platforms are designed. Many platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, are built around the concept of "infinite scroll," which allows users to continuously scroll through their feeds without any clear end in sight.

Other platforms such as Instagram and YouTube have updated their platforms to favor short-term content as well due to Tik Tok’s success.
