  1. I very much suggest you to act on the fact that this is happening. Configure the applications to suit your needs and use them to your advantage, not vice versa. I am not sure but it sounded like you have very pessimistic view of these products and I would carefully assume you are for banning this kind of design, which I think is no way right or acceptable action. A lot of these applications provide very important and useful services for thousands, millions or even billions of people, you shouldn't disregard it. And even after all these arguments, as long as you have the freedom to choose, I don't see a ethical problem.

  2. We built the change:

    Finds you similar people from nearby or around the world so you can finally be yourself on social media.

    Oh and a bunch of things you’ll also like such as jaw droppingly beautiful feeds, filters made by the worlds best fashion photographers (you can share your photos with them to get discovered too), recommendations for tv, video game and movie content, an inbuilt music player and similarly scores for celebs as well as friends, followers and following.

    We hope you all love it. Thanks Nir for the inspiration!

  3. So you either are the hunter or the hunted. You either start a business or the business hunts you. You either go up or down. Highs and lows. There's no such thing as stagnancy.

  4. Nothing is ever enough for a human. A CEO might say if we are too ethical and change human behavior for the better good, then another company might take advantage of our goodness and become less ethical to reap the profits. It's the fear of missing out is evident in all humans.
