The “BuzzFeedication” of Internet media:
Perhaps worse, I’m ashamed to say, I sometimes like it. Watching the social media shares multiply exponentially on something I posted triggers the pleasure center of the brain like a stiff rip of cocaine. The opposite is true as well. When I file a piece I like and no one shares it, I sink into a serotonin-deficit that’s hard to climb out of.
Publishers are sacrificing quality for shareability.
