It still bothers me though that some of the biggest virtue signallers and self promoters seem to get a lot of positive attention.

Personally, I don’t think it’s social media. After all, hundreds of thousands have accounts with no issue. My hypothesis is that it’s the “everybody gets a trophy” mentality. If you didn’t “like” my post, I didn’t get my trophy. Even here at ATS you’ll find posts from people whining about their posts lack of stars or how it’s unfair someone else got stars.
Full disclosure, ATS and a couple of other forums are the extent of my social media, so maybe I just don’t get the need to have folks “like” or “upvote” what I’ve written or pictures I’ve posted. Guess I’m just a slacker...
