This is for +George Station's thread on social media platforms that I never got back to -- even if (or maybe because) it's not about platforms. There's another one lost in link pile that belongs there too. It's about content (and exchanges) mattering, not the social media. Maybe it will turn up again like this one did.

Serendipity matters too. Try as we might, it resists organization and analysis. But the attempt led me here.
