I read a fascinating conspiracy theory last year, which was way more elaborate and far better articulated than this, but here’s the summary:

“Zuckerberg had TikTok banned in India, so that Instagram could launch Reels”


ha ha well said. It is quite true that there’s a different test in between the TikTok and instagram. But the major difference from the point of view of a common person is that in this two fascinated world people think that their life is in a humiliation stage, and in order to achieve that kind of fascinated life they need to upgrade themselves with the trend.
