TikTok thrives through an incredible discovery algorithm and a false sense of influence/popularity. Any video can go viral at any moment. Reels will be nothing compared to TikTok unless Instagram recreates this as well.

@thejfkshow "False sense of influence/popularity" is so accurate. In terms of "Any video can go viral at any moment," not so much. "They provide users with a taste of virality to entice them to stay on the platform. Your first post will likely garner quite a bit of likes, regardless of how good it is..." https://www.boredpanda.com/tik-t... It's just a ploy to get people to stay on the platform. Facebook did it in some earlier days as well. Don't fall for it. Organic reach is dead.

@ucefkh Simple--because social media is run by the largest ad platforms in the world. We are the product first and foremost. Only some are the customers. So if organic isn't reaching the audiences you want, you're more likely to pay these ad platforms (Facebook, Google, Amazon) in order to reach those audiences that you want. If organic reach dominated, it would mean less revenue for the ad platforms.

Yo facebook... come up with something new, instead of copy your competitors. Is there a Downvote feature on Product Hunt?
