What to Read: “The CrowdTangle story is important, because it illustrates the way that Facebook’s obsession with managing its reputation often gets in the way of its attempts to clean up its platform. And it gets to the heart of one of the central tensions confronting Facebook in the post-Trump era. The company, blamed for everything from election interference to vaccine hesitancy, badly wants to rebuild trust with a skeptical public. But the more it shares about what happens on its platform, the more it risks exposing uncomfortable truths that could further damage its image.” Kevin Roose takes you Inside Facebook’s Data Wars. Roose has a unique perspective on this topic since he runs the Twitter account that lists the most shared Facebook content every day. Take a look (you might want to pop some anti-nausea medicine first.)
