  • Don't know if biased is really the word for it...

    But yeah. People like what they have and what is effective. Once something gets established, it is hard to get in the market. Look at the coke vs pepsi issue, and try to imagine a new cola trying to make it on the market.

    People don't like change, unless it is a new thing altogether. Hence why the primes that won out in social media (YouTube, Facebook, etc) have stayed strong, even with some questionable practices. The effort to change and learn new interfaces can cause an aversion to the 'new'.

    Youtube has been demonetizing opinions they don't like, Facebook basically sells your information to third parties for their own benefit, and yet here we sit, still using it all.

  • Yes, Google+ is a good example of this.

    Human beings tend to gravitate towards the familiar. There are established social media sites, where the majority of the people you want to connect with are going to be. It takes a while for new social media to gain traction, and without valuable word of mouth this is unlikely to happen at all. There is a risk in trying a new site, as you will not be able to connect with others - defeating the whole purpose of social media.

  • No, we are use to do it.

    Society was much more biased against social media when it was new. Social media started with the young. It took a long time before people in the older generations decided to become more comfortable with using social media. Now, today, people are used to social media and what it can do.

  • People tend to be more biased toward it.

    It seems that people are biased toward new social media, not against it. Society often looks to all forms of social media to inform their opinions and knowledge, and new sources of social media are seen as progressive or "exciting". The bias tends to be more against conventional news sources and word-of-mouth.
