not the full internet, but outside social media…. yeah, in a 50/50 way.
i mean, now every time i try to google anything 90% of the pages are ai-generated content, paid advertising or sites designated to be on top results no matter what you search.
honestly killing stuff like forums and the small web was what killed the interned imo, social media is pretty much an advertising n spyware disguised as communication platforms at this point, i dont know how ppl manage to use them on app, without an ad-clock… (and even blocking the ads, all influencers or whatever do is to advertise to you in a direct or indirect way)
so yeah, are there tons of real people out there? yes
do real people still outnumber bots & similar? also yes
but as >>134678
said, everything is marketing now, i dont think it will hit social media as hard, but if google is mostly ai stuff now, i think everything will keep going downhill
