The recurring theme of the World Wide Web slowly and gradually "dying" as we know it at least is important because the media itself is not talking about it. But why should they talk?
When websites produce tech news that is 80% paid for hidden product placement, it's hard to blame the web users who visit them. It's like they're posting about bots and not human beings.
These sites in some cases seem to work, and even go viral (names not mentioned or shown). This is probably where we should be concerned because this means that the average user doesn't realize what's being swept under the rug.
The thousands of pages that contained real technological news and not directed have been closed or simply continue to "stand" on the web without being updated.
Δεν θα μιλήσουμε για τα τεχνολογικά νέα που περιέχουν, γιατί είναι πια ετεροχρονισμένα, αλλά υπάρχουν εκατομμύρια opinions για το στήσιμο και την διατήρηση ενός ελεύθερου διαδικτύου, hacks from the beginning of the internet, with tech explainers, security papers, and a bunch of other stuff that Google doesn't care to highlight.
SEO and its engines upload and download pages, obediently obeying Google's algorithms.
This is how we see technology news without a soul, with hidden advertising messages or technology news that follows the trends, and of course follows the regulations for a perfect SEO to the letter. For example when the trends say Apple, everyone will write about the company even if they have nothing to write, or even if they have already exhausted the topic.
Probably 5 years from now there will be very little real tech news (rather than driven) on the web.
The replacement of journalists or people who breathe with technology, with the chatbot is coming if it has not already come in some cases. The readership doesn't seem to be looking for alternatives. They are comfortable with the social networks they hold well, and few of them surf to search something new and remarkable.
