The obvious things I’ve learned about social media:

Serious posts don’t matter unless there is a picture or something raunchy.

People will follow or read something because someone else did, even if it sucks. (Those are also the people who would follow another car blindly into a lake.)

Dumb shit makes you famous.

Celebrities remain a thing. (See above.)

Cat and dog memes have probably surpassed human content. (See above.)

If you can’t beat them, follow them into the lake.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
