What about the ads that follow you everywhere?
Or the algorithm that shows you strangers & horror shows before they’ll show you what you want to see: the stuff that your friends post.
Or is it the fact that every message you send on Facebook is open to random employees?
Would it blow your mind to know they all have the same cause?
This is it: it’s really hard to connect people to other people online.
It’s a technological challenge more than a people challenge.
That’s why I made this week’s video: to help you understand how deep the challenge is, but also to shed some light on people working on making things better.
If you’re even half interested in a better life online, then you’ll want to give this video a watch.
