MIT Technology Review has just published a book review article by Karen Hao entitled “Review: Why Facebook can never fix itself.” After reading it, my question is: Can Facebook ever be fixed? Period.
I’ve posted here previously about the problems with Facebook, with one especially critical post that cited Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe by Roger McNamee (2019).
Ms. Hao’s article is a review of the newly published book, An Ugly Truth, by investigative reporters Sheera Frankel and Cecelia Kang. The book apparently reveals more bad things about Facebook and its dynamic duo at the top, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg.

Ultimately, the core problem is still what McNamee identified: Zuckerberg is all about profit over people. Read Ms. Hao’s review; it’s a well-written piece that deserves wide distribution.
