Facebook's Other Critics: Its Viral Stars

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/08/technology/facebook-viral-stars.html

        For the past two years, Ryan Hamilton has been getting
        Facebook-famous. Mr. Hamilton, 28, manages a network of
        Facebook pages and makes viral videos for his "Hammy T.V."
        channel -- mostly lowbrow fare with titles like "Shocking Pit
        Bull Social Experiment" and "World's Hottest Pepper on
        Girlfriend's Thong" -- that have earned him a level of
        popularity typically associated with Kardashians and BuzzFeed
        food clips.  But to hear Mr. Hamilton tell it, Facebook has
        failed him.  "It's a complete mess," he said. "No one trusts
        Facebook."
