A dirty truth
Facebook has become an inseparable part of our lives. The company influences what we see, collects data about us. This book reveals what goes on behind the scenes. In ‘A Dirty Truth’, Sheera Frankel and Cecilia Kang get to the bottom of Facebook. For the past four years, the company has been under constant fire for successive controversies and crises. As the tech giant connected the world, it turned out that it was also collecting users’ data, spreading fake news and amplifying polarizing, hate speech. Massive privacy violations and Russian interference in the 2016 US election were just the tip of the iceberg. Each misstep triggered a new cycle of excuses and promises: “We’ll do better.” But the said scandals are not bugs; they are characteristics that are ingrained in the DNA of the company and its algorithms. And as consumers and lawmakers focus their outrage on privacy breaches and misinformation, Facebook is consolidating power, devouring competition, making record profits and strengthening its dominance through aggressive lobbying efforts. In this book, Facebook’s struggle is told from within. It’s an inconvenient truth that the world needs to know.
