Facebook is going through some major changes, and that apparently has something to do with the departure of two executives. We can only hope that the changes will be better for society.
Mark Zuckerberg announced recently that he planned to take the company more in the direction of private messaging and communications and away from public sharing. The social media giant that was started in Zuckerberg’s college dorm room has had phenomenal success and corralled a major part of the digital advertising market. At the same time, it has had some bad effects on society.
To see the dark side of social media, look no further than the horrible slaughter that was perpetrated in New Zealand Friday, when 49 people were killed at two mosques in an attack that was streamed live.
Zuckerberg has made a fortune. Now perhaps he can undo some of the damage.
