It’s fashionable lately to "hate" Facebook and cast Mark Zuckerberg as a Bondesque villain, but recent research shows that the YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, has become the single most important hub by which an extensive network of far-right influencers profit from broadcasting propaganda to young viewers.

Internet and social media were supposed to kill TV. That didn’t happen, it just changed the way we use it. We need naive prophets calling for burning down the old world and start from scratch. They are agents of improvement, but history shows that slow evolution is a more common path. Based on this I am quite sure that Facebook will be OK in 10 years from now, it might be just very different from it’s current form. And that’s OK.
