For several years i hated the algorhytms in Twitter and Instagram, so when this very rich dude wanted to buy the birdsite and finally did buy it, it was the ultimate moment to leave. I had already left Facebook 2? years ago, and Linkedin also really annoyed me more and more, so left that behind me as well. Instagram... ah yes, it hurts. But lots of people that followed me, were only interested in their own selfs, never liked anything nor connected with me, so fuck that. Twitter was almost the same. Only a few people interacted, out of 760 or so that supposedly followed me. Because of the algorhythms, yes, but my guess is it was also all about the more likes, the more attention etcetera, instead of real connections. It did not feel right anymore, as it did years ago.
So bye to all, and welcome to new all at Mastodon. I love the federated way of connecting, no algorhymes nor advertisers. However, ofcourse, it is not the Walhalla. People are still people.
But i think the way social media is organised, is important and we should be aware of that. People change their behaviours, according how they are being pushed into some system of attention and rewards. It should not be this way, so that's why i left. I hope to see you all somewhere in the Fediverse!
And yeah, fuck that horribley rich dude.
