Replied to How will we try to fix Facebook? (Bryan Alexander)

A rising tide of criticism holds that the world’s largest and richest social media enterprise, Facebook, is a disaster for civilization.Β  From Zuboff’s critique to the techlash, people charge Facebook with subverting democracy, fomenting hatred and violence, boosting hideous political ideologies, selling user privacy, and warping our attention, among other things.

So what is to be done?

Bryan, I find the ‘return to vintage Facebook’ narrative interesting. It paints the picture that the time when news feeds were full of ‘Which … are you?’ quizzes was somehow more ideal? I think what was ideal about that time was the mass naivety behind much of this in regards to users?
