Facebook is designed to make us dumb, that is why I call it the idiot man website, read for explanation.
You already know that there is an algorithm working behind websites like facebook and twitter which filters posts and shows you content which "they" think you are interested in.
Moreover, it also filters based on popularity of the person making the post. So the person with higher popularity, you will keep seeing posts from them again and again.
Now what does this really means?
Imagine you are watching TV, and the TV automatically keeps taking you to the channel whose stories TV thinks that you might be interested in.
Moreover, it only shows you channels which has higher TRP.
So basically, you will keep ending up on same channel again and again, watching stories from same 2-3 reporters again and again.
You have 100 other channels in your TV, but those are all waste now.
The TV will keep taking you to Arnab channel covering farmer story, then it will automatically take you to Sudheer channel covering same farmer story, then back to Arnab channel with same story, and so on.
You might want to switch to sports channel, but you cannot.
You might want to switch to entertainment channel, but you cannot.
There is no switch to change the channel on social networks...
Its like you are a frog in a well, who thinks that whatever those 4 "walls" are displaying, that is the whole world, the whole truth.
This is a sure shot recipe to limit your mind in its abilities, to the extent that eventually you cannot even think in a different direction...
This is what these social networks are doing to us, using their "filter algorithms".
