Invitation to Talk to Series sessions


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

No, Facebook does not reflect reality

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
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

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
