(foxnews) —Former Facebook president and billionaire Sean Parker has lashed out against the social network and social media in general, pondering what the ramifications of it might be years down the road.

In an interview with Axios’ Mike Allen, Parker, who was portrayed in the movie “The Social Network” by Justin Timberlake, said social networks have the power now to alter society and not for the better.

“I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and … it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other … It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways,” Parker is quoted as saying. “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”
