👉 Go to How the Fairness Doctrine should apply to social networks - without bullshit
I’m also not a proponent of breaking up Facebook. I don’t think it will do much to help with the problems they have created. I do like the idea of treating them as a media company. Their position of not being accountable for content is unacceptable.
Simply put: social networks like Facebook are contributing to the polarization of American politics. The solution is not to break them up. The solution is to require them to expose members to a diversity of viewpoints.
Why is America so divided? Why, even now, are there partisans so desperately afraid of Biden’s election that they are willing to try almost any strategy to undo it?
I think the reason is that reality itself is fractured. Each of us has our own reality.
I think this is definitely worth a shot, but I doubt it would happen. I’m still of the mind that we need to take an arc like smoking with social networks. We need to get to the point where we recognize that these platforms are not good for us, and that we need to take our own accountability for solving that by quitting them.
