Nobel Peace Prize winner Maria Ressa used her new prominence to criticise Facebook as a threat to democracy, saying the social media giant fails to protect against the spread of hate and disinformation and is "biased against facts".
I guess we should realize that social media is not really media, just like oat milk is not milk.
From the Washington Post:
"The first time I heard Ressa speak, she told how she had once tried to
explain to Mark Zuckerberg that the company’s dominance in her country
brought with it a huge social responsibility. Ressa told Zuckerberg that
97 percent of Filipinos used Facebook, and she invited him to the
Philippines to get a better understanding of the problems that result.
Zuckerberg seemed to ignore the invitation, concentrating instead on how
Facebook could increase its domination in the country. “What are the
other 3 percent doing, Maria?” he allegedly asked."
