From the article:

And this bumps up against another part of Cory’s enshittifcation concept: it only works when switching costs are high. Social media can make that work. But I’m not so sure that Reddit has the sheer gravitational pull that social media has. Yes, there are social media-like communities on various subreddits. But, on the whole, the communities are built around topics, and it’s kind of easy to just move elsewhere (again, fediverse options Lemmy and Kbin are already looking pretty nice for that).

    I have a feeling the big surge will be on 7/1. Or at least a second wave when the apps actually go away. I think a lot of folks are in a wait and see hoping Reddit chnages course and the app devs were given exceptions etc. since that may not happen, the real surge will be around then.
