How a news industry executive might react upon believing that the news industry has Facebook and its digital asset, Instagram, on the ropes by stoking the energy surrounding news media headlines, implying that social media is preying on the emotions of teenage girls and their anatomical insecurities. Like a broken record, we’ve heard it and read it over and over again, the infamous headline, “for teen girls, Instagram is a cesspool.”
Big-tech-social-media, once more, you can’t say I didn’t warn you. “All things STUPID about the news” [“ATSATN”] (pronounced: “uhsätin”) is your answer. My twenty-five-million-dollar brainchild is an unorthodox news monitoring and censuring idea that’s waiting to do brilliant things. One that the public will obviously love.
Now you BIG-tech tycoons need to remember that 25 million dollars is not a lot of cheese. It’s peanuts compared to the kind of money you Ivy League types are pouring into startup failures. Do yourself a HUGE favor and acquire the intellectual property.
