Cards for Insight: Social Social Media
The generative review of chat is social social media.

The fragmented review is social media. Fragmented, death by anodyne, fly by emoji, non-committal concision and mostly uninformed opinion comments, reinforcing solipsist, cynical and/or shared misery inducing dispositions, amplified by proprietary platform grand theft data algorithms.

— How? How would we know we’re leveling up
from social media to social social media?
— Flow. Flow is how you know.

flow = structure x process

“x” = patterning in general and shared understanding in particular

— But, this is too hard to change for any one of us!?
— Yes. This is why we need different social machines,
with
algorithms of loving grace, enabling different ways
to manage scope, reach, distribution and scale.
