Early FB, Google workers form research center to combat "ill effects of social networks"

“A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies they helped build.”

As one member says

“Facebook appeals to your lizard brain — primarily fear and anger,” he said. “And with smartphones, they’ve got you for every waking moment.”

I have been observing this for years, but I am powerless. Hopefully this group can spread awareness of the dangers of social media, including its widespread use as a propaganda messaging platform by everyone.
