Moreover not only is Facebook’s user experience poor, so is the experience for advertisers. See the editor’s note at the bottom of this blog to learn more about the trials and tribulations of content creators and advertisers on FB
Why Fake Engagement?
Secondly what’s the reason for all this ‘fake engagement’ on the social media giant.
Discord and Disagreement
For example we should be now be aware Facebook encourages discord and disagreement. From the time of my first post on this subject new information has come to light.
Facebook Is The Wellspring Of Discord
Dangerous and Destructive
To clarify, yes I’m saying FB is the most dangerous and destructive force in our society.
No Comments Please
Especially relevant to this podcast is a further clarification of why I refuse to allow comments on my FB posts. Get that podcast here.
Incendiary and Divisive Comments…From Bots…Or Worse
Could Facebook Be Behind It?
Finally I’ll ask this as a question. I wonder if Facebook itself is behind this. And, if they are, why? Check out Facebook’s-Real-Evil-Purpose-Bob Davis Podcast 939.
Negative Reinforcement Always Wins
In the same vein tech writers long ago exposed FB algorithms designed to reward discord and division. Negative reinforcement creates a stronger bond and more engagement than positive reinforcement.
Even more propaganda on social media platforms has always been suspect.
Massive Manipulation Of Americans…And The World
Here’s my thing. In short I came the conclusion recently it all might just be FB itself manipulating users for its own purposes or worse, at someone or something’s behest.
Consequently we all might think twice before engaging in back and forth arguments on FB. In addition, we might think twice before commenting at all.
(Editor’s note: I am doing a new post for podcast 939 due to two reasons. First replacing an image for a podcast with Facebook clunky and byzantine image ‘scraping’ process is slower than just copying and pasting a new post with a new SEO title and some minor changes, Second, Facebook also has images with any artwork that uses the Facebook logo, but slightly changes it. So much for the social media giant’s promotion of ‘free speech’.)
