The Indignation Network

Your user interface designs look like a child did them!


That shade of orange looks terrible on you!


You are a landlubber and a picaroon!


Anger drives user engagement, which results in more revenue. Nothing is more effective. The Internet runs on outrage.

Earlier That Day


We can run the whole Internet for weeks with the engagement I've created today! I'll be promoted in no time!

Feelings are great servants but terrible masters.

I've been thinking about this for a while, and yes, the Internet is powered by anger these days. To make all your favorite online services "free" they have to sell ads. And to get people looking at ads they have to get people spending time on their websites. An easy way to make people spend more time on a website is to show them things that make them angry and give them an opportunity to respond (thereby possibly making other people angry). Or share the webpage - make their friends angry too. Misery loves company. It's a vicious cycle that's been dragging the Internet down for years. This is not what the Internet was made for! It was made for sharing pictures of cats!
