🔊 SOUND ON 🔊
00:00:02.506 --> 00:00:06.806
Facebook has no sound. Instagram has no sound of their brand.
00:00:07.126 --> 00:00:08.426
This is a huge miss.
00:00:08.766 --> 00:00:14.752
There should be an audio mark that plays when certain things happen or even at least when you open the app. Let's talk
00:00:14.803 --> 00:00:17.566
about just Instagram for a second. If you think about Venmo:
00:00:18.306 --> 00:00:24.375
There's a cash register cha-ching sound when you receive money. And you actually have a physical reaction to that where you get a
00:00:24.425 --> 00:00:28.306
little dopamine rush, you feel good, it's a positive sensation - good association - with
00:00:28.626 --> 00:00:29.026
00:00:29.766 --> 00:00:30.266
Facebook and Instagram
00:00:31.106 --> 00:00:38.070
have a lot of things going on in our body, a lot of reactions in our brain, major hormonal and neurotransmitter shifts
00:00:38.131 --> 00:00:44.006
happening as we scroll and like and see comments and get those emotional strokes (ego strokes).
00:00:44.686 --> 00:00:48.286
But there's no sound to it. Huge miss.
