Every Day I Want To Quit Social Media
[ no more time to reflect and think for yourself ... we are all and feel Alon Together. ] I am drowning in a sea of anxiety created by Twitter and Facebook. [...] We all want to be recognized as clever or witty. [ your best side, public ] [...] I ended up on social media for a reason, and though the reason escapes me during moments of sheer panic and anxiety, I take part, no matter what — the pursuit of relevancy, or, in the strictest sense of the term, validation, is an imperative that exists as a key part of humankind’s quest for meaning. Self-definition has become intertwined with social media. We are all here for each other. I wake up staring at my phone. I fall asleep to the glow of the very same screen.

meritocracy, democratic, egalitarian. anyone who has interest, can find it. u will have an audience, even it is just 1. either they like it, share it & come back. or they leave u alone. // Beme, remove the aspect of creation. the friction. the cognitive cost. the overhead. a process to follow. a tutorial or how to listicle to read. to Google or to ask. >> Product developers & investors should think about the cognitive cost of their products. The cognitive cost very often can be much higher than the financial cost. Products with a low cognitive cost are those where the technology fades away and dont require a consumers ongoing attention. bit.ly/1Nz0veO // "Don't make me think." << book, UI UX mantra. // Photo-filter-app vs photo-editing-app vs video-editing-ai-augmented-intelligence-app that have popped up. podcasting.

When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash" // value of celebrity has increased. vs scientists/white-worker. easiest (illusion) of social mobility/income mobility & illusion of it being a job, that there is a market, demand. social media helps people project themselves! u can become famous.

The Journalist and the Casting Call | PandoDaily
[ becomes a road traveled by many, raising money for your free app w 10k downloads, calling it a multimillion business. ] // If you want to get angry or unsettled about television crews exploiting the Bay Area for mainstream audiences, you have an embarassment of choices. With some luck and salesmanship, disgruntled San Franciscans may soon be able to drain their id safely at home, yelling at their sets, as basic cable does for tech what it has for the pawn-shop and hunting-call manufacturing industries.

Author And YouTuber John Green Tells Advertisers To Stop Worrying About Eyeballs | TechCrunch
John Green talked about how he and his brother Hank built a devoted following of “nerdfighters” on YouTube, contributing to the enormous success of his book. In fact, they’ve built an online video business with 30 employees. But Green’s ad revenue is outweighed by things like crowdfunding and merchandise — and that ad revenue is falling by 5 percent every year. He acknowledged that’s not true for everyone on YouTube. Nonetheless, he argued, “Many of the strongest communities are dramatically undervalued by advertisers, forcing YouTubers to find other paths.” [...] And sure, distraction is fine, but Green doesn’t see himself and other “passionate YouTubers” as being in “the distraction business.” Instead, the best shows are in “the community business,” and he watches them because they help him “grapple with and consider the problems and questions way down deep there in the darkness. [...] focusing on eyeballs is a crummy way to measure the success and value [...] eyeball biz shrinking!
