Instagram’s recommendation engine has suddenly decided that I’m French so I should be watching French videos (even though 80% of the content I’ve ever engaged with was in English, and my devices are set to English); I guess I should be thankful for the effort to make me use the app less.

I remember reading recently that TikTok’s algorithm is also heavily localized, and that’s just one more reason this format is extremely not for me.

Want to know when I post new content to my blog? It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding to your feeds (or if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
