I don't really know how FB works as a corp, but somehow the celebrity-style focus on Zuckerberg feels like a misdirection. Not to absolve him in any way, but there's a board, shareholders, hierarchy of managers, not to mention a rotten socio-political system behind every crappy thing that Facebook does. Every article about FB is accompanied by a goofy Zuck photo, look what this dufus did now. But I feel like, no, look what our society did.
@neil Yep. FB would die quickly if people stopped using it. As long as they keep making excuses for sticking with it, the thing stays around.
@neil IIRC Zuck still owns the majority of votes, so the board does what he wants, or they get replaced.
@neil This is how you know he's a good CEO - he can be portrayed as a hero/scapegoat in order to absolve the rest of the company of responsibility.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
