I know you said no paragraphs, but…
Well, I think the veil is and has been drawn off of this entire “social media” platform concept as a whole.
What we know about social media platforms like FB, Twitter, IG, etc is simple. These were entire platforms designed to construct social networks for people to connect.
The problem is, the minute people we’re given the chance to upload personal content, such as personal info, (birthday, location, age, birth location, etc) photos, info on how they know other people, etc. all the way down to personal tastes and things they liked, they voluntarily gave that info up, and we now know that BIG TECH is in the business of BIG DATA and the like. More importantly, what can be done with it. Sold to 3rd parties, used to swing thoughts on issues, both personal and political, down to even purchasing decisions, and it has not gone well.
I think the era of social media is going to see an evolving death, because people are learning what has been done with these social constructs.
The bigger issue is net censorship, net neutrality, and most importantly net monitoring.
I always thought the website forum concept, like infocomms, is the best. People are just thirsty for faster methods to engage, and the FB’s of the world were born. Now people are reverting back to forums like these because it brings balance back to the way the data is gathered, posted, and moderated.
Simply put, I say let the social media platforms DIE. Let people slow the advancement of TECH and how we engage in it, to protect ourselves from falling back into these BIG TECH traps.
It will avoid a lot of the aforementioned questions. Bottom line, you post stuff on the internet that is illegal, you will get arrested, prosecuted, and taken to court to plead your case.
