New reporting shows that Facebook played a pivotal role in incubating the Big Lies that led to the January 6th insurrection. Unsurprisingly, Facebook has failed to act, showing us yet again that the company won’t regulate itself. It's time to break up Facebook.
Why is this important?
Facebook’s algorithm incubates extremist content. Extreme content gets more clicks, and more clicks make Facebook more money on ad revenue. In other words, Facebook has every incentive to continue spreading false content.
Unless federal regulators take action, the company will continue to grow bigger and more powerful.
Sign the petition: Federal regulators must break up Facebook! Our democracy depends on it.
