We spent too much money on learning how to market products that are bad for people and making sure schools cranked out people susceptible to marketing strategies that make you think paying money for poison is a good way to exercise your freedom.

And now we wonder why telling people that something is bad for them isn't enough to get them to stop using it.

life is hard and shitty and I want to enjoy and easy way to watch cats and people dancing or helping teach me new things.

Our society is pathologically, insidiously lonely. We’ll take whatever we can get.

Maybe society wouldn't be so lonely if people weren't being atomized by apps designed to keep you glued to the screen.

Most just don't care. Try to talk to them about it and they will think you're paranoid.

Self-interest is beating out group-cohesion and self-protection in just an absolute banger of a 1-v-2 fight.

We care more about bouncing titties in some dancing hottie than the protection of our data...

Attention span of goldfish. The idea of 15-30 second videos was absolutely genius. Keeps people hooked.

They do have good ideas in the app though.

You can download videos and it gives you their tag. Never been done before.

You can find the original video by going to the audio source usually, never been done before.

You can Duo and stitch, I don't think this has been done before.

You can use a lot of popular songs in your videos without worrying about it being taken down.

Then you have the bonuses of filters, quick editing and a great algorithm.

Imo this makes it the best video service.

Maybe the Apple and Play stores should pull it?

Everything you do tracks you. Put your debit/credit card into the Walmart app and then use your card at the store. The app will update to tell you what you bought even though you didn’t put your info in at the register

Trump wanted to ban it, and Trump is bad, so banning it is bad, so it didn't get banned. It's that simple.

Even when Trump is right, he's wrong. My mommy told me so! 😛
