Molehill Mountain Episode 331 – Negative Engagement


Is the algorithm even DUMBER than we thought?

  • 0:00 – Facebook keeps populating my feed with some woman dancing in her undies and I’m not sure why
  • 4:30 – Does YouTube consider blocking a channel as engagement to justify recommending similar content?
  • 14:55 – I have Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom but I haven’t played it yet
  • 28:50 – I saw Jurassic World: Dominion. It has dinosaurs in it!
  • 39:05 – The sequel’s coming out so I finally watched The Meg. It’s surprisingly good!
  • 55:45 – Like a Dragon: Ishin is a lot of fun despite being the technically weakest entry in the Yakuza series.
