Why Every App Now Feels Like TikTok, But Worse

quote [ It drove its competition to madness. The big social apps now feel increasingly the same because they?re filled with the same stuff: content their users didn?t ask for made by people they don?t know on platforms they may not even use. Where they used to see posts from people they know, now there are algorithmically suggested videos from somebody made for nobody. ]

Good article on the entiktokkification of shit. And it's every platform: multiple autoplays running on news outlets and Pinterest becoming nothing but a videowall.

What should be considered is the sheer energy consumption constant video streams put on bandwidth, devices and servers.
