As much as people will dislike this, smartphones. People look like zombies tapping away on their phone. Many people have an obsession with it. If they are not near their phone at all times, they become panicked. We can find any information we want, yet we seem to retain less of that knowledge than learning it through other means. Confirmation and other biases occur way more often, causing our own information that we acquired to "feel" to be accurate, even if it is wrong. Everything moves so quickly that mob mentality prevails within minutes, instead of taking a minute to wait for the whole story to come out. We have become less thought provoking and more instant gratification.

so true..Mob mentality is something which never affected me, funnily enough. I guess I'm simply "aware" of not being part of the herd.

Aren't you maybe giving people a little too much credit by suggesting that we were more thought provoking before smartphones were invented? I fear that confirmation bias and mob mentality are merely intrinsic in human nature, and I highly doubt that smartphones have that much to do with it.
