In the realm of social media on the internet every body is first of all 'wrong' all of the time.
And 'right' too all of the time.
With Fake names, fake news, fake understanding but real emotions.
All pointing to
It is what it is.

Such a thought provoking article. Here are a few of the passages that stood out:

"Why are we so addicted to judgment, both dishing it out and receiving it? Perhaps that question can be answered by reframing it: Why do we turn away from — or, in many cases, preemptively reject — dialogue?"

"From the perspective of driving user engagement, these behaviors are features. This is why newspapers allow readers to vandalize articles with racist and otherwise hateful comments — engagement is engagement! A good-faith reader is worth one click, whereas a devoted racist troll could be worth dozens.

Twitter is reluctant to ban trolls for similar reasons — they increase engagement from friends and enemies alike, building group solidarity through shared enmity. It’s also why harassment campaigns are probably a permanent feature of public-facing social media. For every user who gets “voted off” (i.e., driven from the public sphere organized by the platform), hundreds and perhaps even thousands enjoy the adrenaline rush of the mob violence."

"Just as the social media phenomenon is driven by a business model, so too is the broader deinvestment in education part of the neoliberal economic model that privileges short-term profit over long-term investment, or more broadly, the accumulation of wealth over any other social goal."

"But the problem is bigger than the internet, and so the solution must be as well. We must restore institutions of education and information and rebuild the decaying social solidarities for which the social media culture of judgment serves as a hollow substitute. That is to say, the problem is not ultimately technical, but political. Better online tools may help us do that work, but they can’t do it for us."

What a terrible idea!
This binary decision means that I'm more likely to start watching movies that I would not otherwise. But it also means that I am more likely to stop the movie minutes into it due to a lack of interest. The net result is that I'm going to be a more irritable Netflix user. Not only do I love Amazon's 5 star rating, but I really really love that they display a movies IMDb rating!

Never forget anonymous calls and never forget that "i'm a Lady!"

In Germany, a Taxi is legally obliged to transport you, even if that means driving grandma 20 km to the pharmacy. Taxis in Germany are officially part of the public transport system and hence the law guarantees availability for everyone.

With Uber, you'd never get something like that. Hence many people in Germany are against it.

Are smartwatches actually a success? I find it hard to believe that they're not more bothersome to wear than useful. Also, out attention is stolen enough by our already countless devices, do we really need more?

I am shocked that the top bid is only 125K. If the owner had merely parked the domain he'd have made that many times over by now.

What a waste.

An excellent article! These are all known facts but it is good to remember from time to time who these people are and who pays the price of their "empires".

Sencorship is not new in the world of Zuckerberg's Facebook. In September, Facebook disabled the accounts of multiple editors of two of the most widely read online Palestinian publications. This move was interpreted as part of an agreement between him and the Israeli government.

And this will work because? People are using facebook like an escape from work, tasks, family, whatever... Why would they want to socialize more with the coworkers, for mor gossip maybe? Probably I don't get it...

Here's a good piece on Kim Jong-Un from Onion, it's reminiscent of some America-hating characters in here (though all of them emanate from a single source).

Kind of funny how Uber markets the cars as "driverless" despite there being a human behind the wheel of each vehicle. Uber just chooses to not call that person “a driver.” ;)
