Make me smart with Kai and Molly:
Facebook is cigarettes… It’s Big Tobacco… They know its product causes harm and they keep minimizing the harm to keep selling product.
As Mario pointed out, who brought this to me attention, there are 2 billion people addicted.
This is a perfect analogy. We know it’s bad for not only us personally, but also to society as a whole. Yet the addiction runs deep through the world. Of course nothing will ever happen to Facebook, it’s too popular, and makes too much money.
Maybe the best we can hope is that the people that do use it are a bit of an outcast and have to huddle around outside in the rain!
