NEW YORK, NY (MMD Newswire) May 13, 2009 -- Social media expert and author David Seaman claims that frequent Press Release use causes the "equivalent of brain damage".
"We're seeing thirty and forty year olds acting like overly emotional teenagers on MMD Newswire," Seaman said. "It's not all that healthy."
Press release use also takes complex ideas and boils them down into "overly simplistic soundbites" according to Seaman.
"Basically, press releases have some good uses, but they're making us all a bit stupider."
