No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

@fribbledom I agree in practice, although here we are getting into the philosophy of what a social network *should be*.

Shouldn't social networks strictly facilitate and reflect real-life social networks and all that that entails? The moment we start nudging people toward being their best selves -- away from tribalism, embrace other cultures -- we are making and enforcing value judgments on a natural system that evolved over millions of years.

And if not, who does the deciding and enforcing?

LMAO kick him

@masyukun i am not serious.

It didn't evolve in millions of years, we've lived with internet for a few decades.

Naturalistic fallacy, obviously. And there are plenty of reasons to disdain tribalism. It allows for dehumanization of others and thus violence.

Also it is simultaniously "nudging" and "enforcing" pick one..

@masyukun @fribbledom hmm do think there is a concern;

Some of the uses i see suggest more intimacy(using the word loosely) and others more a general forum.

In some ways this is all very public and intimacy is very visible.. It's probably okey, if you want something which is really for a tight-ish knit group.
