CHIANG MAI – A video of a man on a motorbike fondling himself while driving in Chiang Mai Province has gone viral on Thai Social Media, sparking social disgust over the mans sexual deed.

CityNews in Chiang Mai reported that the video was posted on December 11 by Facebook user named Tanakorn Chamwong, along with a comment that warned people of people sexually exposing themselves before joking that his home must not have internet.

Police in Chiang Mai tracked down the man in the video and arrested him under indecent exposure charges. He was identified as 48 year old Buncha Nunti, an electrician from San Sai.

He told police that he was drunk and saw a woman riding the songtaew and became aroused.

Mr. Buncha told police that he was just drunk and does not suffer from mental illness, despite this not being the first time he has masturbated on his bike after seeing a woman he likes. This is the first time he has been caught.

Police charged him with indecent exposure and he was fined 500 baht and left off with a warning, police did not charge him with drink driving despite the man admitting to driving drunk in his statement.

Meanwhile, a former Facebook executive admitted that he feels “tremendous guilt” over his work at the social networking service that he said was “ripping apart the social fabric of how society works”.

Former Facebook vice-president for user growth Chamath Palihapitiya accused Facebook of “programming” its users and said he no longer uses the social media platform or allows his children to use it.

“People need a hard break from some of these tools and the things that you rely on.

“The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we created are destroying how society works.

“We are in a really bad state of affairs right now in my opinion, it is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by and between each other,” he said.

Chamath talked about Facebook creating “huge tensions” between his friends and social circles, and about users falling for hoaxes on social media platforms that has led to lynchings and vigilantism.

Chamath also talked about how users curate their lives around a “perceived sense of perfection” because they get rewarded in “hearts, likes, and thumbs-up”.

“We conflate that with value and we conflate that with truth, and instead what it really is is fake brittle popularity that’s short term and leaves you even more vacant and empty,” he said.

Chamath joined Facebook in 2007 and left in 2011. He is now the founder and chief executive officer of Social Capital, a firm that invests in technology startups.

He is only the latest in a string of early Facebook employees and investors to speak out on the perceived evils of social media and warn the public about its effects on society.

Former Facebook president Sean Parker slammed Facebook’s founders for “exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology” and putting children’s mental health at risk.
