Webinar: How to Stop the Lies.
Part of the web we are caught in is fed by viral disinformation. Nowhere is this more acute than on the world’s biggest social media platform, Facebook, which has replaced broadcast television as the source of many people’s news – and many people’s lies. Sure you can #DeleteFacebook, but you can’t delete the impact it has on the world around you.
Join the #ProtestFacebook coalition in a June 10 webinar to dig deep on what Facebook is doing to manipulate users, the changes that could be made to end the madness, and what we can do as users (or as “the product”) to make those changes happen.
We’re very pleased to host this conversation with Jeff Chester, ED of the Center for Digital Democracy, Carmen Scurato, Senior Policy Counsel at Free Press and the Change The Terms Coalition, Fadi Quran, Campaigns Director at Avaaz, and the #ProtestFacebook coalition.
