Not just another critique of #fb, but eye-opening because we do not hear that much about FB’s impact outside of the US. Plus, important questions asked about ethics of tech. I wonder how in good conscience people, especially those well-versed in Computer Science, continue to use Facebook?
Remember that Guardian article about the red-headed lad. 'Twas a brave piece. As was her speech, including co-opting the phrase “take back control”.
Happy I spent the last 3 years crafting a social life that doesn’t rely upon FB products. Unfortunately, the bigger picture is that most people don’t have the right incentives to leave them. The first step is always a short period off. I’m glad that First Week Flip Phone provides one vessel in which people can experiment with a week off Facebook products, in a socially supported way.
