How online platforms die (article)
14 Jun 2023, 02:33 PM

"Here is how platforms die: first, they are good to their users; then they abuse their users to make things better for their business customers; finally, they abuse those business customers to claw back all the value for themselves. Then, they die."

Someone posted an interesting article in the deviantArt forums about how online spaces decline, and I thought it's interesting enough to share. It's using Tiktok as an main example but you'll probably recognize many of the bad things that happened to deviantArt and many other formely cool online spaces, such as algorithms pushing content that brings money rather what people actually want to see, reducing the opportunities to just have fun, connect and communicate with each other in favor of monetization options, etc.
