How Facebook got addicted to spreading misinformation

How Facebook got addicted to spreading misinformation

This story helped me understand Facebook on a deeper level. It focuses on the man how oversees artificial intelligence at Facebook, a driving force behind Facebook’s success and a symbol for its inability to fix its problems. A tale of what happens when you put resources and some of the brightest minds behind tackling complex problems — but let it all come down to the same bottom line: Does it help or hinder Facebook’s growth?
