Would you pay €9.99* per month for a non poisonous Facebook? The algorithms on these sites are not made for the user. They’re designed to get you to click and therefore naturally default to showing you anything that’ll get you fired up. Outrageousness, cuteness or the rarer cute outrageousness work best.
