Washington Monthly | How to Fix Facebook—Before It Fixes Us
the users most likely to respond to Leave’s messages were probably less wealthy and therefore cheaper for the advertiser to target: the price of Facebook (and Google) ads is determined by auction, and the cost of targeting more upscale consumers gets bid up higher by actual businesses trying to sell them things. As a consequence, Facebook was a much cheaper and more effective platform for Leave in terms of cost per user reached. And filter bubbles would ensure that people on the Leave side would rarely have their questionable beliefs challenged.

Want to take a lunch break and just see popular funny videos you friends are sharing? Use our "virality" filter to pick only the most shared content.

Facebook founding president sounds alarm - BBC News
do you know your neighbour? Chomsky manufactured consent. perfect personal propagandist. outrage machine. time waster. feedback loop for No Representation feelings. “I use these platforms, I just don’t let these platforms use me,” // Adam Curtis - FB can not present you with a future, a proposal. bc it is insular isolated environment (perfect personal propagandist) even if you are 'connected with the world.' It's a sham. Its millions of bubbles. not "A" world connected. Occypy was better than facebook. But Occupy hat not even a handful of leaders. political social economic movements need leaders to refer to, dialogue, interview, sign policy papers, etc etc. mass democracy still needs a leader and leadershuip and management and people skills. see Momentum.

Us vs them: the sinister techniques of ‘Othering’ – and how to avoid them | Inequality | The Guardian
Exclusion and dehumanisation [...] [ It's not just the economy, stupid. ] Conservative elites know how to strategically create and use fear of a perceived Other, by organising and manufacturing fear. [... manufacturing consent - Chomsky - Facebook Newsfeed is the perfect personal propagandist.] [...] Part of the solution to Othering must come from the stories we tell. // >> Facebook is the perfect personal propagandist (ppp) for nationalistic fear mongering fake news us vs them stories. <<
