A long read, but a Facebook ‘like’ being a “potent weapon” for political profiling cautions me re. ‘liking’. https://t.co/3yW7Jvut6M #mscedc

I’m not a big fan of ‘liking’, both since it can feel banal or a forced singularity over a range of complex responses, and because it leaves a digital trace that lacks context and nuance, or might carry more nuance, in aggregate than I would know or want known.

Is it true that ‘Delete is a lie’? Or another fiction (in the etymological sense of something made)? If so, ‘delete’ and ‘like’ are of the same indelible stable.

Sorry, Daniel and Dirk, I’ve liked this conversation but not liked it. If you know what I mean 😉

Bring on ‘Algorithmic Cultures’!
