I am not a professional social media professional – translation not somebody who craves upvotes on reddit or facebook or even on wordpress (my blog however wordpresses social features are mostly an afterthought) and i wonder if those users with upvote tally’s in the 10,000’s plus are the reason why social media is such a toxic place for social media firms.
Its easy to get upvotes that’s a herd like mentality – eg i like bananas. Crowd friendly and no hot sauce..
After all if numbers mean the world to these strange people then clearly social media is not me. Its easy to be herd like and liked but then those people are shallow they are a version of a propaganda machine which many countries will be interested in influencing or sock puppetry. Russia has been claimed doing this with people although there is supposed to be software from the nsa’s contractors (my blog) as well .
If i ran a social media site i would hate these type and be mindfull of these few losers with days and days of free time like the sjw’s which is what totals of likes in the thousands indicates but these users are the creation of those firms.
There are genuine people with followings and i guess they will become better known provided the left wing media approves of them but as they become more popular with the people the open the envy from the regressive left.
Who lasts the longest the platform (my blog) or the users will be interesting to see but social media as it is now is somewhat biased. Social media is not that important to me.
