Because people want to communicate and if there are convenient tools for this then it gets popular. If you don't wanna use such tools then just avoid them. I myself don't use such tools, I recently found a good trading platform after reading this comparison https://www.koyfin.com/compare/bloomberg-alternative/. But I communicate with other traders via social media.

What's the point of making it more social? I've never understood why people want to see everything as a social media

Sadly, it took me a long time to get to find this podcast by normal search on the internet. But by putting the RSS link over here, I'm able to find it.
