Living dead internet theory

Noted by on his .

I propose an alternative to the Dead Internet Theory called the Living Dead Internet Theory, an exaggerated version of my actual beliefs:

  1. Any content written to optimize against algorithmic curation is as bad as algorithmically generated content.
  2. Algorithmically-curated content is disproportionally biased towards content optimized for said algorithm.
  3. The most accessible content might as well be written by bots.

Don’t use short-tail search queries for discovery.
