„Hi“... ;-)

I have similar thoughts as you. Steemit has become much faster, even more superficial. Not only since the split, which limits a somewhat longer attention for the individual blog for many even more.
Perhaps the profit motive has long since replaced social interaction? Not only on the Internet?
By the way, I still receive many comments. Once I have voted them over the payout limit, the conversation is usually over, which confirms my theory...
Well, however - have a nice day!
Best regards,

Thanks for stopping by @chriddi!

Sadly, it seems that you are right... the profit motive has overtaken the social aspects. I see what now goes on the "trending" feed and it all looks like a big "money harvesting" project, not a social content platform.

I think I may try a more active experiment of just commenting on lots people's posts, simply to see if anyone responds. The whole idea of a post with 300 upvotes, $30 rewards and NO comments seems a little "off" to me.

Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time!

Very good idea! Afterwards you will have enough material for a new article, because you can publish an empirical study... ;-)

I do enjoy commenting and curating, but then I realize that I don't have the time to write articles myself. Looking for interesting articles on other blockchains doesn't fit into my spare time window anymore.
From this I conclude that those who are busy producing daily coin-grap-posts on three chains have no time for social interaction.

Nevertheless, good luck with your experiment and hopefully have fun with everything you do here!
