Vox short film explains why social media sites self-destruct

Why Every Social Media Site Is a Dumpster Fire” with Carlos Maza.

This video from Vox pretty much explains why social media sites incentivize extremist content, that tends to appeal to “tribalism” in most people.  (Carlos looks pretty hot in the video!)

Siva had pretty much covered the same ground in “Anti-Social Media”.

It leads you wondering, do some people have less of the tribal genes?  Maybe introverts? Maybe those with some mild autism?  Strong individualists?   Maybe those with “schizoid personality” which may not be such a bad thing.
