Welcome to Zuckerberg

“The point is that Facebook has a strong, paternalistic view on what’s best for you, and it’s trying to transport you there. ‘To get people to this point where there’s more openness – that’s a big challenge. But I think we’ll do it,’ Zuckerberg has said. He has reason to believe that he will achieve that goal. With its size, Facebook has amassed outsized powers. ‘In a lot of ways Facebook is more like a government than a traditional company,’ Zuckerberg has said. ‘We have this large community of people, and more than other technology companies we’re really setting policies.'” Franklin Foer on Facebook’s war on free will.
