Your likes and engagement influence what apps put on your timeline. On Twitter, I often see categories like “based on your likes.” If you start spending more time liking and interacting with a certain category you’ll notice more of it on your timeline. You’ll also find the things that the people you follow interact with.

The goal of these apps is to get you to spend as much time as possible on them. They do this by catering to your beliefs and interests in order for you to engage. Even if you’re not on a social media app you’ll find advertisements related to your recent search history.
