Abstract

As Science and technology develop at a remarkable speed that humans’ ancestors might have never foreseen, it is sorrowful but true that people are excessively reliant on social media in the modern world. Admittedly, technology is useful and convenient, but sometimes it is also dangerous. It seems that social media is creating a paradox effect: While rendering people illusions of a variety of opportunities and dreams, social media hinders people’s perception of real life. This paper is aiming to address the question—how Alibaba facilitates engagement without being exploitative. The paper will be primarily focus on two areas of study: Behavioural Economics and Evolutionary Biology. It will cover the consequences of covid-19, the pet attachment theory, humans’ evolved preferences, and digital nudging.
