This. To me, the funniest thing about the car scene and social media is all these clowns being more concerned about E-fame and likes than the car that they're actually building. Some of these "builds" are a compete joke and I find it absolutely hilarious that I know people building some really impressive vehicles in relative secrecy while other people are obcessed with getting thousands of likes for their almost stock, stanced turd with a cracked bumper and bacon fenders. All depends on your priorities I suppose.

I just like seeing people with knockoff fender flares get upset when I call them out for hacking up their car and slapping on the cheapest parts that they can find.

I may or may not have had one too many and went on a Facebook rampage and got kicked out of a group when I went a little too hard.

Worst thing I've seen about social media is how buzzfeed / upworthy / nowthis / etc - style infographic videos are the only way a lot of millenial / gen Z are getting their news, just forcefed to them by these media companies. Much of it is just a super-condensed version of the story narrative. The video you @Mr.Impreza linked mostly follows that style but at least is well fleshed out. But seriously, all these videos are just copycat of that style, and its FUCKING ANNOYING.

And the way shit is spread around without any kind of fact checking. Here's a couple examples that I've seen posted by friends who obviously didn't know better:



Or maybe this video that has been spread around by thousands of people:

[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_j4ySi3RZY"]A man exposes cereal companies for putting poison in their cereal! - YouTube[/ame]


Believe me I feel bad for sharing these. If you can't see the holes in the argument and are blindly posting shit like this, please just stop.

Another example I'd like to bring up is how media companies (like these MTV News videos below) are feeding you a one sided opinion rather than news:

[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTrvkqRaYTo"]How Voter ID Laws Explain Structural Racism | Decoded | MTV News - YouTube[/ame]


Again, spot the sentimentalization of a pretty simple topic.

And clickbait titles:

I see it now and then when I'm off exploring parts of the web I don't usually visit. Someone will give and opinion and the counter argument is "Well, what do you expect from a [choose one] Republican, commie, right winger, Democrat". That is, there is no discussion of the opinion or counter argument, just straight to the ad hominem attacks.

Just like here!
I love when I am in a debate (or think I am debating) and I present a couple of paragraphs presenting my side and the response is "Well you post so much you are just a dumb spammer" without as much as one single word refuting what I said. That is usually the stage in the debate where you just give up because you know there is no counterpoint coming.

Well I think it's still important to see where a person is coming from with their argument to properly validate it. For instance a facebook friend of mine posted a blog post / slam piece on Jimmy John (sandwich shop dude) and his trophy hunting in South Africa. Checked the post, and it's a liberal feminist blogger from South Africa... opinion discarded.

Or an Op-ed piece on CNN.com or Fox that displays opinion pieces with factual flaws or leaning bias in the same column of article titles as other real news articles. You have to validate your author (and their history of articles) to determine whether they're being genuine or if they're on a political agenda.
