Meta Shows Its True Face

I have no idea if a Meta executive offered the statement reported in “Top Meta Exec Blames Users for Spreading Misinformation.” We live in the Stone Age of Deep Fakes, redefining words like unlimited, and getting rid of bad grades. Anything is, therefore, possible.

Here’s the statement I noted:

“The individual humans are the ones who choose to believe or not believe a thing; they’re the ones that choose to share or not to share a thing.”

There you go. We built a platform. We provided algorithms to boost engagement. We shape the content flows. And users are responsible for whatever.

Amazing. I really want to work at “two face” or — sorry — Meta so I can sit in meetings and validate this viewpoint myself. Bizarro world, whatever, I want to be the only 77 year old in Kentucky to hear Meta’s wisdoming first hand. Zoom is okay with me, but I am wise to Zoom hacks which fake who is really in the meeting.
