Look, can we all agree that, at the very least, FACEBOOK IS TOO BIG? And too naive to be trusted with the consequences of its size and influence? Or to act as a government when it isn’t one?
I want to tell everyone to kill their Facebook accounts, but I know I might as well teach a pig to sing. (And I can’t deny that I do wonder what the atmosphere is like on there today, with the Mueller indictments.) But good grief… you can find news elsewhere! It’s not that hard! And you can also pick up a phone and call a friend–or, better, meet them for lunch–and talk to them! In person! It may not be as “efficient” as believing you can talk to all your friends at once, but it’s more fun and it’s better for your soul. A lot better.
As the social media giant grows in the developing world, its platform is being used to spread misinformation and incite violence.
