There will always be a tug of war between the people and those who try to control them. The more tools the people have at their disposal, the better. But nothing can is more important than making sure people are educated and critically aware.
you really think face book cares about you
These new media types like to believe that they ares somehow different. That somehow they are immune to the same propaganda techniques that have been used for centuries. They are not. Reality hits virtual reality.
If Matt Bia is concerned about Russian trolls and bots he could start with getting Yahoo to BLOCK THEM.
Social media for sure have caused damage to human societies , but more so in terms of kardashians, hadidies, and all other Facebook, instogram, twitter celebrities than Russians could do. So even if the Russians exploited the social media to impact the election, the issue is not that, but it is why a bunch imbicle, talentless idiots are social media celebrities and have social impact power?!
Matt Bai still hasn't explained why Russia would prefer Trump when they had thirty three thousand hacked emails of blackmail against Hillary Clinton.
yawn. If you can't think for yourself then your in bigger trouble than this!
Oi, you really think 100 k worth of Facebook ads doomed Hillary, who spent like a billion dollars? She was a terrible candidate, period. I promise they had nothing to do with my vote, I've been waiting to vote against her for years. What ridiculous nonsense.
Bai's writing and nobody's reading - much like Russia's alleged ads.
The MAJORITY of what you read see and hear in America is pretty much propaganda now folks and it's not just Facebook and twitter. America only has 6 media outlets left and they are ALL interwoven with the government.
Please, stop wasting your time. As anyone who's been paying attention for the last 25 years knows, Hillary would've had to have run against Lucifer for her to have been the lesser of the two evils.
Another biased article from the twisted mind of Matt Bai.
