@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?
@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..
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.
