This is the great question to me about how “social media” (which is now by far the largest and most lucrative category of media) evolves. I think there will be a reorganization into platforms that allow curation and many of us will follow top curators and not just our friends. This happens a bit in the newsletter world already. But as we all get overwhelmed with volume, this will begin to take precedent over pure algorithms again
