Take a Break from the Walled Gardens

Social Media 2.0 provides a limited window to the web

by OOF | Web Captain @feathermode

Web 2.0 social media apps are known as walled gardens because they house content and data within the confines of their namespace and use methods that coerce users into staying on the platform and persuade creators to create purely on the platform instead of other places on the web. The walled gardens of social media are amazing for the discovery of content and watering holes, but due to algorithmic bias and echo chambers of public discourse, these gardens often times start to look, feel act and promote the same content. There is a whole universe of content out there on the World Wide Web so try sometimes to take a break from the confines of the well groomed garden and go backpacking across the strange terrain of the World Wide Web!
