"The entire system is designed to make creators desperate, and to make them behave in increasingly erratic ways. The creators are pushed to constantly generate content, as cheaply and as quickly as possible. It’s potentially a very lucrative business, but it’s entirely dependent on a mysterious and ever-shifting algorithm that rewards and punishes videos in search and recommendations, seemingly at random... The real platform speech wars tend to be fought on the margins, by the players who can dress up conspiracy or bigotry and tap dance on the terms of service without getting thrown off."

I feel that the turmoil in the current social media landscape could be seen as signs of an upcoming online polarisation. I'd argue that eventually there will come more camp divided platforms where likeminded people can find each other. I really think the current clashes are the last rumbles and twitches of web 2.0.
