edit: i just want to reiterate that this was a rant, i was really pissed off and frustrated in the moment, and i know byte isn’t COMPLETELY overrun by these people.
i am genuinely just so uninspired by all these new people just constantly posting the same exact content. its tiring to go through my mix page. it’s exactly why i hated tiktok.
i came to byte to escape tiktok, but now almost every video i see is just a downloaded tiktok. there’s barely any actual byte content, that i’ve been able to see at least. the channels seem like they’re being a little more moderated now, which is nice, but i try to inform people (politely as i can within the character limits) about channel usage whenever i see something blatantly misplaced. which, half the time, comes with “we don’t care shut up <3”. today i tried to do that and i was met with her and her friend stalking my page and commenting stupid things under my bytes. it’s not even hurtful, my eyes are just in so much pain from rolling around in my eye sockets.
i wasn’t much a fan of the millennial humor going on before “alt” tiktok found us, but these “alt” bytes are just so mind numbingly basic. i genuinely would rather have the millenial humor back, at least there was a LITTLE variety. and people just seemed like they were having fun. now all i see is videos with the color changing filter and text on the screen asking to be famous when they wake up.
i want to make actual content on here so bad, but like i said, just all the bland tiktok content just makes me frustrated and uninspired. it’s so hard to get myself to make anything besides bytes ranting about other bytes, which is just making the recycled content buildup even worse.
i dunno. this was all over the place. lmk if anyone feels the same way i guess.
