Over the past few years, the term trending has come to mean everyone is looking or talking about something.
Can that be manipulated for an entity's own motivation?
I believe it can.
if I possessed the ability to control the top right corner of any web
page and in that corner the caption said "Trending" and a bunch of
words, phrases, videos or pictures were there linked to content.
that draw the attention of the viewer to be distracted enough stop what
they are reading and change gears and go look at what appealed to them
right at this moment in place of and rather than the article they were
just interested in - which may have been a trending item as well?
How distracted can "Trending" be to our society?
Can "Trending" increase ADHD or other forms of attention dysfunction?
I just wonder.
My 2¢ for today.
