<nettime> "Facebook is the New Crapware"


Dear nettimers, a. you have all left Facebook by now (or ages ago), b. you are still on it, c. could not be bothered, d. are busy with more relevant topics. Here is some material in case you want to be uptodate about the social media question. We’re now ten months into the Cambridge Analytica case and things do not look very well for Marc Zuckerberg. In March-April 2018 most of us were still cynical… things would never change. Here at the Institute of Network Cultures we’ve been running the Unlike Us network since 2011--and we can indeed see a significant change over the past year. What still lacks is a concerted effort to identify and promote alternatives. What is clear is that there won't be one… Below are some of the pointers Unlike Us members been collecting over the past two months. Best, Geert
