Just saw an interesting post from a major cosmetics manufacturer:
"An audit of our social content and strategy demonstrated that on average, only 6% of our followers are serviced with our content in their newsfeed because we don’t pay to play. "
...they have millions of followers on Facebook etc, but almost no one sees their posts.
Their response is to try promoting their own websites instead of ad-based third parties'.
(Article name is a coincidence!)

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Nein, doch! Wie kann es sein, dass man überall in der Welt (der Privatwirtschaft) mit der gleichen NFC app bezahlen kann aber öffentliche Verkehrsmittel mehrfach geschachtelte inkompatible Apps erzwingen?! So geht digitale Gesellschaft nicht...
