Science failing to find correlations between social media use and polarisation

There is this weirdly dominant narrative that social media drives political polarisation. It's not just that I have another good explanation for polarisation, it's also that this scapegoats what might actually be a useful technology, and/or confuses the real problems of social media manipulation and disinformation. Note: this is a perpetually under-construction blog post (in the old times it would be a Web page).
