Today I saw a post makin the rounds on FB, this girl posted something about her food stamps getting reduced down to $1,100.00 and people ripping on
her for this because its an absurd amount of benefits. My first thought in my head was wow I only spend like $30 a week but I'm a baller like that and
don't have any dependants. Then when I thought about it for a minute that's absurd amount of money because it was an error it has to be right?
Thinking before posting won't stop the hordes of Fb an twit warriors ever! Mob mentality rules on social media.
If anything gains any traction it just seems people are forced to join in. It might be the most ridiculous post but if it gets over say 20likes
there's a good chance everyone who sees it is gonna like it too.
The same thing happens here, stars flags yea you need a couple and the thread needs tractions those two factors determine sharing more than the
content while not every well liked post thread comment etc is of high quality. All of them with a big enough audience and a certain quota of well
liked* starred* flagged* or shared* and you can expect the masses to follow. Don't call me a hipster, or not conspiracy enough. That is
