I think I'll change opinion on Frances Haugen...

Financial Records Show Facebook ‘Whistleblower’ Is Less A Concerned Employee And More A Radical Democrat Activist
https://thefederalist.com/2021/10/06/financial-records-show-facebook-whistleblower-is-less-a-concerned-employee-and-more-a-radical-democrat-activist/

Democrats and Media Do Not Want to Weaken Facebook, Just Commandeer its Power to Censor
"Whistleblower" Frances Haugen is a vital media and political asset because she advances their quest for greater control over online political discourse.

This is a popular Meme going around on Facebook that pretty much summarizes what I think:

my feelings towards Reddit is kinda like as if though I'd be hanging out around a high-school; fragile, young minds sharing quasi-intellectual discussions in a secluded environment of which I have zero interest in even trying to engage in, as I'd feel rather uncomfortable with the whole situation

Twitter, besides politicians, celebrities and a**holes, seem to be the main outlet for indie-game developers, as such I use it to promote my games

as for Facebook, apart from its agenda, has finally come to a point where it is more about actually interacting with one another and less about 'showing off your life-style with pictures of food, travels and other fashionable things that young adults like to do.'.

I have never visited any other social media sites (Reddit, I've, much like a high-school, briefly passed by, realized the awkwardness of hanging about and quietly moved on)

And journalists - Twitter could well be the main cause for mainstream media's radicalization over the last decade.

Sounds more like they're fleeing from their parents. If only they fled from social manipulation, but I guess that's never ever happened in the history of mankind...

Perhaps we have reached Peak Queer now? Even J. K. Rowling's new book is reviewed favorably in liberal media (like New York Times) despite the TERF "controversy" a couple of years ago.
