The nonsense of social media algorithms

A few days ago, I uploaded 7 seconds of video in which I say “I love coffee”. On a channel that has zero subscribers and as good as no content.

To my astonishment, I just saw that it’s already gotten nearly 500 views.

YouTube clearly recommended it to a lot of viewers.

I wasn’t even in the video, just my French press and my voice. 7 seconds.


When I see how much crap I get fed into my stream all the time, even when I have indicated that I don’t want a certain channel etc. I watch one or two videos on something and all the other content gets pushed away next. Ugh.
