Television had multiple networks.
televisionAt its inception, television was touted as a wonderful new tool for education and enlightenment and All Good Things. It promptly turned into a means of entertainment aimed at the lowest common denominator. Hence the “plus ça change” and-so-on.
The answer is simple, social media needs to embrace a rule that many forums have found actually works. Ban political talk completely.

If you link to other websites (outside of Googles rules), you are penalized
Google's rules were for the shonkies, not honest webmasters.
" partner pages exclusively for the sake of cross-linking.."that is illegal. We should be able to link to who we want without fear of Google.
And the helpful little people "how to" sites have also been squeezed out by the behemoths.

Video bandwidth throws off the statsThat's enough of an explanation right there. Even the most ineptly coded and/or image-heavy page won't run more than ten megabytes, while a feature-length movie will set you back at least a gigabyte. I should bear this in mind the next time I'm deciding between TV Tropes and CInemaSins.
