Former Facebook executive: social media is ripping society apart
« on: December 12, 2017, 08:44:03 AM »
Not really news,
just echoes what I have been saying for a while now

Quote
A former Facebook executive has said he feels “tremendous guilt” over his work on “tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works”, joining a growing chorus of critics of the social media giant.

I monitor but seldom post. People over share to their own detriment.   
I use 96598 as my zip code, which prevents virtually all spam ads.

I marvel at “friends” who announce they are going away for 2 weeks to an overpriced exotic location because they are such studs (and mischievously hope the burglars take note).

And the ones on it are steering the boat so to speak.
