Invitation to Talk to Series sessions

Hi GG

In preparation for the *Talk to Facebook* moderated session here’s some
food for thought.

No, Facebook does not reflect reality
<www.nytimes.com/2020/09/09/technology/facebook-mark-zuckerberg.html#:~:text=It‘s%20true%20but%20also%20comically,what%20people%20think%20and%20do.>

In a nutshell.

*Despite what Mark Zuckerberg says, Facebook shapes our world.*

Mark Zuckerberg is the world’s most powerful unelected person, and it
drives me bonkers when he misrepresents what’s happening on Facebook.

In an interview that aired on Tuesday
<www.axios.com/zuckerberg-facebook-conservatives-algorithm-0ad23698-7bfe-49cf-9250-fb333edc218e.html?utm_source=zuck-dig-otrch&utm_campaign=hboseason3a.html>,
Zuckerberg was asked big and thorny questions about his company: Why are
people sometimes cruel to one another on Facebook, and why do inflammatory,
partisan posts get so much attention
<www.nytimes.com/2020/08/27/technology/what-if-facebook-is-the-real-silent-majority.html>
?

Zuckerberg told “Axios on HBO” that Americans are angry and divided right
now, and that’s why they act that way on Facebook, too.
No, Facebook does not reflect reality
