Because we are the product, not the consumer

An explanation of why things like Facebook are so awful. It also, as maiac commented to me yesterday, explains why so many comment sections are awful.
Sure they use new terms like funnels, engagement metrics, conversions and click-throughs, but when you strip away the buzzwords we’re in the 1950′s trying to create a TV show that appeals to housewives so we can show them ads for Tide.


Thanx to andrewducker
