rich people always think they are the smartest people in the room. Nobody wants to admit they are got rich from generational wealth and dumb luck.
I’m surprised the article didn’t mention how this is nothing new in the entertainment industry. Certainly not a new thing that came with the rise of streaming. Studios have been hiding viewership numbers from creators for generations. It gives them leverage in contract negotiating.
The Always sunny in philly crew have mentioned they didn’t know how much of a hit they were until season 4 when they did comic-con and filled a giant room.

It’s user hostile design. The pressure for these apps to make money means they all go there eventually. They need ads, and they need people to stay on the app longer to view more of those adds. So they add all the suggested posts into your main feed to keep you there longer. Which eventually infuriate enough users that they leave.

I guarantee it’s not the UX people making those calls. It’s the advertising people who are in charge now.
