"…This is the same that could be said with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, et cetera, where the objective is not anymore to unify through great things, but to chase algorithms and to get as much money as you can from a said topic or subject. But will this ultimately wear out social media as we know it? Will it become a place of vitriol in hate that not even sponsors would want to pay for? The adaptableypse is a great example within YouTube.…"

"…I think that wasn't until Facebook. Anyway, I'm curious if anyone remembers. So, yeah, I was like, okay, what was thinking of? What's the intention? Like, you said, the connection. Okay, so we are connected now and we're using the comments, but yeah, most of the time it's full of hate and just ugliness on the comments.

"…So yeah, the comments section is vital and without it, it's not as interesting. I find I'm not as intrigued in something if there isn't a comments section. So let's take, for instance, Swell.
