    It isn't broken. All of social media is like that. I HATE Jordan Penis, Tate, Rogan, anti vax shit, conspiracy idiots, Let's go Brandoners... yet that what they keep trying to show me lol.

    That and I'm tired of the STUPID fake commercials. "This military grade flashlight is lime a a light saber". Or, "Drink this before bed those 30 pounds in 2 weeks"
    Blah blah

    Fucking ALL of social media is a cesspool
    MAGA = My Ass Got Arrested.

    Beware the passive aggressive Mean Girls. Vengie, Killramos, Penismightier, buster, jrscoolude, etc who bully others into their circle jerk opinion, serially negging you, while claiming they ignore you and don't obsess over you.

    PSA. High school is not a popularity contest little girls

    This has pretty much evaporated for me, finally, and with no explanation.
    I actively put significant effort into combating it for weeks and it didn't do shit. Just an endless barrage of terrible recommendations. The only thing tying them together was that they were insanely popular. Something like >800k views in <24hr types of things, but content completely all over the map.

    I think I got that one MrMikes just mentioned around the same time and pretty much since then, it's back to about 95% normal.
    So weird.

    It's readjusted for me now.
    Google news is Pokemon go and tennis stuff. Neither of which I've googled except for Anna Kornikova back in 2001.

    YouTube has recently become more politicized for my recommendations. Not sure wtf is happening.
    Someone's getting paid though.

    It's all stuff your fellow Argentine neighbors are searching for.

    I have been getting a bunch of "idiot in cars" dash cam sites and police body cam channels lately. All I watched was 1 video on interrogation of a teen murderer.

    This showed up today. I've never looked for cinnamon bun videos for one, and for another, are cinnamon buns not normally plant-based?

    Suddenly getting a bunch of Russian videos recommended to me. Wtf.
    Also watched one video on Nirvana song but done with AI and all I get is Nirvana recommended shit like it's 91-96 again?!

    Anyone else feel the algo is messed up again?

    3rd, recommended videos have a bunch that I've already watched.

    Fuck. It was almost precisely a year ago that mine went squirrelly. I hope I miss this round.

    It's to be expected when you live in Turkey.

    The algo is pretty damn useless at the best of times. I watch on my Shield TV so it gives you maybe 20 rows of videos in different categories and 10ish videos per row, but each row is just a rearrangement of the other rows before it. So row one is Home Improvement and gives me some DIY videos. Row two is Tools, and gives me all the same DIY videos but in a different order. Rinse and repeat. If its not the same videos its the same handful of channels at least. I mean just programming it to not show duplicates on your feed would be such a big step forward.

    I get a ton of Warhammer 40K videos for some reason. I've never once in my life done anything to do with Warhammer in any way.

    Conan's great, I went a few months without watching his stuff and then searched and watched one video a few weeks ago, ever since my page is about 50% Conan videos.

    I still think they need to put a button on there that replaces your feed with a random users feed that matches maybe 67% of your demographic profile. Theres so much content on there, I don't understand why they make it so hard to stumble upon something fresh.

    The algo is not adventurous at all. Once you run out of stuff, it just recommend old stuff you already watched. Like videos from 4-5 years ago.

    That said, my feed is full of "porn" right now after watching 2 VR180 videos on beaches.
