Firstly these days content creators seem intent on following their audiences. Learn more in Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089.. Relevance
Secondly that is to say relevance for a creator is more and more about what the audience wants.
Certainly not what the artist or creator wants.
And today’s algorithms often determine the audience. What Is Creating?
But what if
creating is about leading the audience?
To clarify sooner or later creators have to bite the hands that feed them. Dangers Of A Narrow Audience
Or face an increasingly narrow audience although it may be increasing in size.
Even more when likes and shares and subscriptions become the order of the day why not have AI do everything? Role Of The Artist
In short what is the role of the human artist? And what is the process of creativity?
Finally it’s my perception algorithm slaves build
silos of opinion which actually limit objective discussion.
In addition what does one learn if they stay in that same silo forever?
Therefore it’s easy to see why many people think on the same tracks and perform in the same ways, in the end.
As a result creators do not grow.
Imprisoned By An Audience
Likewise I have certainly had my struggles being imprisoned by an audience, back in the day.
It’s About Control
However I’m grateful to have arrived at a place where the audience and the ‘shoulds’ don’t control what I do.
Didn’t Want To Talk About This
In Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089 I take on a subject I really didn’t want to talk about.
On the other hand the
craven nature of creators on almost every subject suggests it’s time to talk about this. Audience Dictators
Finally listeners should not be required to dictate content.
Or even asked about it.
Yet you see and hear this all the time.
Likes and Shares
Subsequently likes and shares, and subs, define the future for those who ‘influence’ society as a whole.
Or so they think.
Thus Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089.
In conclusion content creators might consider breaking out of the self imposed tyranny.
Who Knows Best
In short when it comes to the very human nature of creating, the audience doesn’t always know best.
And neither does the algorithm.
