There are no cogs at Facebook. There are complicit accomplices. The accomplices are not changing Facebook from the inside. If you work at Facebook, stop. If you sell coffee to Facebook employees, stop. If you buy ads on Facebook, stop. If you use Facebook to chat with your family and friends, stop. If you are on the board at Facebook, stop. All of these actions help feed Facebook’s community destroying engine.
Where is your personal line of decency? Have you been moving that line as Facebook monetizes hate, death, and disease? I’m sure Zuckerberg is already planning the ad revenue for the political executions. Is that the line?
I know these seem like hard choices but they’re not. It’s fear of the unknown that perpetuates this terrible reality. Make and use something better than Facebook. That starts with recognizing that Facebook is a misery machine made of people.
