"I Mentored Mark Zuckerberg. I Loved Facebook. But I Can't Stay Silent About What's Happening." by Roger McNamee

But there are about 5 articles that all basically say "Facebook is Evil"

Facebook is facing GDPR-like regulations in the USA, starting with California in 2020.
FTC is about to fine Facebook for violating privacy agreement.

What both have in common is that anytime "privacy" is discussed, the real topic is interest based advertising. Without that, Facebook only has geotargeting and banner ads to sell.

Then there are the conservatives in politics who believe Facebook is against them and is shutting down their right to free speech.

IBA is more lucrative and marketers want it because it's useful to target people with such granular specificity.

If Facebook gets regulated, then those ads are going to get regulated or worse, FB's business model disappears.

So what is Facebook doing? It's hired privacy advocates away from the Electronic Frontier Foundation and is proposing an independent board to hear appeals of Facebook decisions involving free speech.

Apple just punished Facebook more directly while everybody else dithers.

Word is, this sent Facebook into emergency mode because nobody can work on iOS apps right now.
