Parmy Olson: The woman behind Facebook's most damning-ever leak of internal documents has a name: Frances Haugen.

More from the op-ed...

...Haugen's document dump revealed what many suspected but couldn't prove: that Facebook created more lenient secret rules for elite users, that Instagram made body issues worse for one in three teen girls, and that Facebook knowingly amped up outrage on its main site through an algorithm change in 2018, potentially leading to the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol building....

I have been listening to this interview and the 60 Minutes Overtime. It makes me feel much more hateful toward FB then ever before. I have been saying for years that social media is a detriment to society BUT to have them ACTIVELY ENCOURAGING HATE. I honestly suspected as much, echo chambers are not just a figment of our imagination after all. I look at my feeds then I look at the feeds of friends and it is shocking. I barely use FB. Some heads really need to roll - the societal impacts beyond even the US... The impacts on foreign deployments is even more shocking.

Facebook got trump elected and trump got a half million americans killed.

Those are a half million americans that would still be alive today if zuckerberg had been smothered in his crib.

Great. Now if I go back in time I have to eliminate both Hitler AND Zuckerberg?

We have vaccines and are prepared for this winter.

Come spring I doubt many stupid people will be left.

It's only 2% fatal. They'll be plenty of stupid people left.

My thoughs exactly. I'm sure a few of the survivors will learn but I doubt it will be enough to make a dent.

It's hard to leave a cult. There's a reason they call the people who get out "survivors."

"only 2% fatal."

Assume every stupid person this winter will get it and the flu at the same time, that there won't be any room to spare at the hospital, and that covid itself gets twice as dangerous.
