Social Media: no one wants your real opinion

give the people original content. its what they want. is it really?

each day there are millions of retweets. people make near identical comments on myriad items. we don't want ideas that are uncomfortable. sharing the same ideas gives us belonging.

we find a community. do we lose ourselves to common opinions?

these short essays appear to generate comments. we hope people will argue in the comments. but we intend argument in the logic sense. present premises. support a conclusion.

perhaps we should offer more inflammatory or emotionally charged content.

and to follow: why is huff post so popular? no idea. it's just another link curating website with a few bloggers. nothing interesting.
