Bonus questions I’d also love to hear about: Do you believe in making social media algorithms transparent? Do you believe in changing social media algorithms?

Do you find the content that makes you feel enraged and scared, vs the content that makes you feel like your side is “winning” has a stronger affect on your psychology to scroll more?
