Facebook’s Walled Wonderland Is Inherently Incompatible With News
Frederic Filloux

But we, the Facebook users, self-edit, correct? Why is it the job of social media to act like a source of legitimate news? Fox News can be rightfully challenged for billing itself as a news source. Facebook is giving the users what they want. Personally I make sure I get posts that disagree with my views by maintaining a friends list which include people I know disagree with me. And then I carefully attempt to read the whole post, not just the headlines, of posts from friend and foe alike. I suggest that it makes me a responsible political citizen but does not obligate Facebook to act as my surrogate for such responsibility.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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