Facebook’s AI Spam Isn’t the ‘Dead Internet’: It’s the Zombie Internet

Wow, turns out Facebook hasn’t actually become boring place for boomers, but is a bustling shitshow supercharged by artificial intelligence. «The platform has become something worse than bots talking to bots. It is bots talking to bots, […] humans talking to bots, humans arguing about a fake thing made by a bot, humans talking to no one without knowing it, hijacked human accounts turned into bots, humans worried that the other humans they’re talking to are bots, the end of a shared reality, and, at the center of all of this: One of the most valuable companies on the planet enabling this shitshow.»
So, this iconic cartoon, but the dog has become a bot.
