Social Media Addiction Is Escalating The Culture War BY DESIGN

Social Media Addiction Is Escalating The Culture War, BY DESIGN. Like counts, retweet counts, reply counts, all encourage and reward people for bad behavior. Journalists are being driven mad by Twitter and Facebook, they use formulaic ragebait content to drive viewership and push themselves to the fringe in order to constantly one-up themselves and the story.

Big Tech companies like Twitter, Instagram, etc likely know this is addictive but then why won’t they stop? Because it makes them money, it keeps us online.

We all need to take a break and we need to make changes if we want to reduce tensions. Free speech can be protected while still removing the gamified structures of these networks so we can simmer things down.
