2021: The year when social media wanted to be more familiar

Companies on social media haven’t been easy in recent years-research has come out to show that there is little self-control or that people are aware of the negative psychological effects. In movies and series, the fascinating entertainment star has been replaced by the superficial queen of social networks. It’s time to make a fascinating attack on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more.

I don’t like youtube
YouTube has announced that it will not display disapproval (not good). Video owners can see how many times people dislike a video, but viewers won’t be able to see it. YouTube writes: “YouTube introduced a variety of features and policies to promote respectful interaction between viewers and creators. Earlier this year, we’ll see if we can better protect our creators from harassment. I tried the Harassment button for this. ”

Better for creators
The experiment shows that the well-being of video creators should not show off their thumbs. YouTube also talks about unauthorized attacks. People consciously make sure (or just bad) that creators get a lot of disapproval to make a profit. As a result, especially small YouTube channels will be hit hard.
Would you like to delete the entire Like button? YouTube uses that information to recommend videos to others. Creators will probably be annoyed that they don’t like it (they still see it for themselves), but the fact that the rest of the world hasn’t seen it is a burden to them.

There is no popularity contest
Other social networks have also become “friendly” this year. For example, Instagram decided to stop displaying the number of likes and reduce the competition for popularity. In addition to that, it comes with notifications asking people if they should take a break or look at other topics, for example when they seem to be scrolling their destiny. Facebook, on the other hand, is moving in a completely different direction. Social media has decided to reduce the collection of data about users. It still collects a lot of information about users, and links to WhatsApp and Instagram are “dangerous”, but in the end they are at least image conscious. Who knows how it will change further and in what direction when it reaches the Metaverse?

The Metaverse may mean a big change for social media anyway: not only how we treat ourselves in social media, but also how we are treated. It will take a while, but in the meantime, the platform is clearly trying to please.
