Decentralized social media has been gaining steam lately. I'm all for decentralization, but I don't understand how decentralization addresses any of the problems he mentions in the thread.

If the impeachment has shown me anything on social media it's that I have wack a doos for friends on both sides.
My personal favorite post was from a Trump supporter who thought it was unfair that people can make fun of [Trump's] skin color. What if it is a skin condition instead of a choice. If anyone made rude remarks about Obama's skin color all hell would break loose".

Facebook’s own researchers determined that the system as designed encourages the growth of extremism by (among other things) consistently promoting content to you that is a rhetorical escalation of whatever political content and claims you gravitate to in general. Facebook leadership responded by shelving the research and shutting down efforts to de-escalate the conspiracy/hate promotion.

They unpersoned Molyneux this week. I figure they'll periodically remove a few far right people here and there until the election (but not all at once), then sometime after they'll switch to removing some leftists.

It's all part of the plan.

That totally makes sense and reinforces that people are fucking stupid.

There is no such thing as "decentralized" in the sense he is implying.

We’ve recently jumped onto the Ring/Neighbors app... ummm... I can very much see how this drives a bigoted fear of crime.

A lot of big Twitter accounts got hacked today. Wouldn't mind seeing those DMs.

I blame Elliot Alderson and Fuck Society. It was only a matter of time before he relapsed.

I'm not seeing any recent ones, but I haven't looked too hard.
