    TikTok is the New TV

    https://www.wired.com/story/tiktok-new-show-tv-takeover/

    However, no mention of the impact advertisers will have on these short movies. I expect the ads will be baked in & voluminous.

    This is a survey by Pew Research: Teens, Social Media and Technology 2023

    https://www.pewresearch.org/internet/2023/12/11/teens-social-media-and-technology-2023/

    My comment: You are probably aware that teens love being online (a lot). This report has produced some excellent graphs that give a clearer and wider perspective of what teens are drawn to and what they are moving away from in social media.

    Well, that was a nice trip down memory lane. I first connected to the web back in 1996, because I read about AOL, I knew this was something big. But I honestly didn't know that before AOL there were already online services in the US.

    I watched an old episode of ALF where he was stocktrading, I didn't know this was already possible for home users back in the 80's, so I was surprised. You can also find a clip on YouTube, see second link.

    Spotify changing strategy in 2024.

    https://www.cnn.com/2024/02/02/media/joe-rogan-spotify-wide-distribution/index.html

    FYI: Spotify basically streams music but it is also considered a social media site because of its integration with Facebook and X. Spotify podcasts are also available on Apple, Amazon and YouTube.

    Against trend-bait

    https://www.vox.com/culture/24062406/tiktok-trends-slang-terms-coining

    My comment: I'm not against trend-bait. To me it is just fun and mostly harmless. Some are cleverly sarcastic and I like that. One example I came across that someone on social media coined :rolleyes: is 'digital coal'. Mainstream media who cover cryptocurrency get the nuance and they use 'digital coal' more often than not.

    Bluesky and Mastodon users are having a fight that could shape the next generation of social media.

    My comment: The Fediverse will have a lot more to deal with when Threads federates (planned for this summer according to Meta).
