Facebook, 2016 election
Paul Ford

Thank you as always.

It’s daunting to try to zero in on any one factor as significant among the bewildering array of issues and influences and events that affected the result of this election. But decency dictates that we owe it to ourselves and to our fellows and to our children to try and grapple honestly with the whats and the whys.

And it demands that Facebook does, as well. A company that affects what over a billion people see of the world is accountable for more than just its quarterly revenue figures, and its obligations do not end with its desire to please its shareholders.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
