@pzmyers Of course not. You probably know this, but I'll explain it in case there's anybody around who doesn't get it yet.

Fake news fuels engagement. Engagement keeps people hooked on these platforms. People who stay hooked on these platforms see more ads. People who see more ads on these platforms make more money for the platform.

Corporate social media must be utterly destroyed for the public good.

@pzmyers there's too much money in it for them to stop.

@pzmyers but man those infowar links are pure gold. how high do you have to be to come up with stuff like that? (let's not go into how what you have to be to believe them)


addressing the privacy RIGHT issues correctly mean ZERO monetization
