Default The real cost of facebook, the truth.

Ive been wondering, for a while, why so many people believe the audio myths and why theres so many. Always had the feeling the internet was at its root. Now I have some evidence.

The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix - YouTube

Fake news spreads 7 times faster than the truth. Everyone has there own truth, and since it makes money for the rich this will continue and get worse. When people get there "facts", that are customized per individual, from social media what do we expect. How have we become such sheep?

I hope Ive enticed a few to watch, as they say the cure is knowledge.

People have always been sheep. The internet has just sped up the process
and made it more obvious.

Obvious to a few, most are... Sheep.

In a democracy this subverts and oppresses the will of the more perceptive and analytical to the rule of the muppets.

This thread is getting very close to rule #2. Please stay clear or this thread will be closed.

I've fallen prey many many many times, and if even in the slightest, I am fallen now. We all are. Apparently even the speed of light changes over billions of years, so nothing that is now will be ever the same. The only 'solutions' I've ever found were nearly none

My wife and I were discussing the construction of meat filled buns, from a recipe she found on a youtube post. "Why lump all the meat at one end?" I asked "Because that's how the lady in the video does it"

"Do you think someone's an authority on something just because they make a youtube post?"

I feel my statement is kind of obvious, but I guess it's a real thing that's easy to get caught up in. I wonder how a full bench of test equipment in the background effects one's perception of another being some kind of audio authority? I'm sure all the other hobbies - cooking, boating, woodworking, fishing, drag-racing - have their visual counterparts that say "this guy must be a lot better than me - I should strictly follow"

I wonder how you raise a query without being accused of being a troublemaker or trying to wind them up. The more authority they project the more insecure they seem to be.

Think it's a mix between the natural instinct to defend yourself when confronted, and classic misinterpretation (on both parts). One thing is communication in real life, where very few can get along to begin with, and then move the conversation to written form which can be even more limiting.
Grown ups speaking the same language cannot understand each other, and they're trying to get the kids to play nice.

Almost as if conflict is easier to handle than getting along.
