CREATE A SOCIAL NETWORK THAT DOESN’T SUCK
How can social media be this bad after 20 years? Why is it still the most dumbed-down, idea-flattening, joy-sucking hellhole, instead of evolving like the rest of us? Isn’t Twitter a test you already passed years ago? Hopping on a social network these days is like writing in crayon — at what point do you graduate to a slightly more expressive instrument? How many Instagram pictures of cats and casseroles do you need? How much of your life do you want to spend putting your heart and soul into bite-size complaints with the shelf life of a meth-smoking gnat? So many failed efforts: Farewell, Friendster. Nice try, MySpace. Call me, maybe, Facebook. Let’s face it, it’s all been downhill since Live Journal.
