Nearly 2 billion people use @facebook every month, about 1.2 billion of them daily. The company has become the largest and most influential entity in news, commanding an audience greater than that of any American or European TV news network, any newspaper or magazine in the Western world and any online news outlet. It’s also the most powerful mobilizing force in politics. As recently as a year ago, Mark Zuckerberg (@zuck) might have proudly rattled off these facts as a testament to the platform’s power. But over the course of 2016, @facebook’s gargantuan influence became its biggest liability. During the U.S. election, propagandists used the service to turn fake stories into viral sensations. And that was only part of the problem. With its huge reach, @facebook has begun to act as the great disseminator of the larger cloud of misinformation and half-truths swirling about the rest of media. @zuck now acknowledges the dangerous side of the social revolution he helped to start, @fmanjoo writes in @nytmag. But is @facebook capable of adapting to the world it created? @spencer_lowell took this photo at #Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California. Visit the link in our profile to read more.
