Mark Zuckerberg Is in Denial - NYTimes

Mark Zuckerberg Is in Denial - The New York Times: "In Myanmar, for example, misinformation on Facebook has reportedly helped fuel ethnic cleansing, creating an enormous refugee crisis.

 Facebook may want to claim that it is remaining neutral, but that is a false and dangerous stance. The company’s business model, algorithms and policies entrench echo chambers and fuel the spread of misinformation.

Letting this stand is not neutrality; it amplifies the dangerous currents roiling the world.

When Facebook is discussed in tomorrow’s history books, it will probably not be about its quarterly earnings reports and stock options." 'via Blog this'
