I have an Instagram account that is not associated to my name directly and I use it to follow some, um, accounts without judgment. The Instagram algorithm is so weird because it tries to show me accounts that I’m not following and you can tell it’s trying to show me posts from all sorts of different interests to see what I wind up interacting with.
The latest thing the algorithm thinks I’d be interested in is “anti-work” accounts that post memes and videos about the grinding nature of capitalism, jobs, and the cliche of the 9-5 workday. I gotta admit, some of the stuff is pretty funny, so I’ve “like” a few of these posts, which probably only encourages the algorithm to show me more of these posts.
Alright, I gotta go to bed so I can be rested for my job that I have that allows me to relate to all these workplace memes.
