Algorithms tend to be over optimized.
Not due to the model itself.
Due to our extensive open-scroll-close app behavior.
We’re feeding the algorithm so it can feed us.
Again and again.
Until it gets worn out.
Until we get bored of the information we get.
Too much of the same.
Less surprising content.
Less new exiting stuff.
The algorithm on its own is worthless.
Mankind on its own is worthless.
Both combined are the best mix to explore in the shortest amount of time the maximum amount of egocentric curated content.
The only thing is … are you able to reset the algorithm … or not?
