Today’s noteworthy tweet comes from David Meerman Scott:
This tweet links to a blog post written by David in August, 2021 titled “When Fandom Turns Into a Cult“. In this post David reiterates his belief that the Facebook algorithm to be the most destructive technology ever invented. He says “When the destructive nature of the Facebook algorithm meets the language of a cult, many people are sucked into the resulting vortex of misinformation.” I have to agree. Social media in general, and Facebook in particular, have taken a turn for the worse since the early years.
