What does the internet look like in a post-social media world?

As I burn out on reading people's comments and responses on facebook, on reddit, and in the comment sections of articles to which I am linked I begin to wonder where the value is in reading most of these people's opinions. They are absolutely allowed to have them, and to express them even, but very often there is little value for me to read them. Most people adding comments are adding nothing new or useful to the conversation. I can't be the only one feeling this. The pundits on the news shows. The echo chamber chorus on the morning radio shows. At some point we have to tune out the inanity of it all. Just like you should be tuning this out. I wonder how the internet will change when the frustration of listening to/reading it all reaches a tipping point.
