“An article calledFacebook’s Downfall”, brutally honest about his top management:
The company’s quest for “growth at any cost”, referred to as “cancer” in biology, cannot go on indefinitely. There are only two possible outcomes: either the growth is forcibly removed and destroyed, or the growth continues to kill its host.
I think my favorite line in that article is the line I’ve been trying to say here for years.
Facebook is different: leaders made disaster possible. They are in free fall.
Also, this line stands out.
Finished. The only remaining remedy is the law, which leads to criminal proceedings, handcuffs.
This has been my way of speaking for years, even making regular trips to DC to help make a case for accusing the Facebook NGO of crimes.
While many of us have for years compared the immorality of Facebook executives (especially their NGOs) to the tobacco industry spreading known harms for personal gain… this post seems to be the first time I’ve seen a convincing argument that Facebook has cancer.
And it’s not just esoteric experts, security experts, or ethicists who have these discussions about Facebook. Here’s a high-profile 2018 CEO interview for perspective:
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff argues that Facebook is as addictive as cigarettes and that the social media platform can have serious effects on society.
Clearly, public embarrassment didn’t do the job. There may be handcuffs for their NGO.
