Isn't technology manhandling us?

Pheed is the new kid on the block. Another social site for stuffs like photo-sharing and blah blah.
So Telegraph recently put this question to the readers, ‘Have you tried Pheed’

And this was my response:

No, I haven't yet tried Pheed and I do not think I ever will, or that I ever should. Social sites and apps are supposed to help or entertain us, not to enslave us. With so many of them already ruling our lives, was there any need for Pheed? It pains me to see how technology is manhandling the youths today.
During my thoughtful Dumbledore-ish moments, I often get reminded of what Rohit had innocently said in 'Koi Mil Gaya'-  "Insaan ne computer ko banaya hai, computer ne insaan ko nahi banaya"
