Technically, showing all the posts in chronological order is still an algorithm... yes, but I think that use of algorithms is not really the issue as such, even if people don't know the right words to use


@evelyn you're right, of course, I was just being silly. The problem today is not having control of or understanding the decisions behind what you see, and I know that's what people mean by "algorithm". this does remind me a little bit though of a British politician, the digital secretary, who asked when microsoft was going to "stop using algorithms". ordinary people can have the benefit of the doubt but not her lol
