Technology has taken over the world with such force, it is becoming almost impossible to remember what life was like before such technologies like the internet and Smartphones.
This technology is proving to have some unintended and dire consequences to society’s moral fabric and mental well-being.
In a recent interview Roger McNamee, one of Facebook’s first investors and a former mentor to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, warns of the social media giant’s harmful and potentially irreversible effects on society.
McNamee, managing director of the private equity firm Elevation Partners, joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the argument he makes in a new Washington Monthly essay, “How to fix Facebook — before it fixes us.”
He claims Facebook has prioritized advertisers and is aiding in the social engineering of its users, while leaving users open to unknowingly being herded into certain beliefs and/or feelings about certain topics.
