Quartz: YouTube’s autoplay function is helping convert people into Flat Earthers

Quartz: YouTube’s autoplay function is helping convert people into Flat Earthers. “The first time I watched a Flat Earther YouTube video, I was entranced. The theory was that Earth used to be populated by giant trees, and so any change in elevation on Earth was actually just giant tree stumps. It made so little sense that I needed to know more about the theory, so when YouTube automatically started playing another video after the first was complete, I continued watching. Then I sat through a third, and decided I should stop. Apparently, this is the path that has led many people towards believing flat earth theories.”
