The Public Square

"If Facebook were a country, it would have the largest population on earth. More than 2.2 billion people, about a third of humanity, log in at least once a month. That user base has no precedent in the history of American enterprise. Fourteen years after it was founded, in Zuckerberg’s dorm room, Facebook has as many adherents as Christianity." - The New Yorker, Sept. 17, 2018

Researchers from MIT and The New Yorker are now beginning to ask the same questions about Facebook and Google that we have been asking for years. This is a program you simply cannot miss.
