Google, like Facebook, is recognizing that it cannot hide behind the idea that it merely reflects reality. No, reality is gamed and altered according to the platforms’ vulnerabilities.
Facebook Steps Up
Jeff Jarvis

That’s an important notion. Our media shapes our perception of the world. After all, each of us creates her/his own reality. A shared base of information or inputs is necessary if we regard a common reality as something worthwhile.

Based on this, I think it’s fair to regard the most relied-upon platforms for seeking information as reality construction machines. In this piece I digged into the question weather or not Facebook is too-big to-fail precisely because it performs this function. I didn’t get to a clear answer but I think we need to watch it carefully.

So, thanks for caring!
