Here is an excellent Pod cast from the NPR 1A show on Facebook. Joshua Johnsonm is interviewing Roger McNamee, the author of ‘Zucked: Waking up to the Facebook Catastrophe’
You may have lots of friends on Facebook. But are you friends with Facebook?
It’s been 15 years since a Harvard student named Mark Zuckerberg co-created the social network in his dorm room. But like many teenagers, it’s prone to misbehave and worry the grown-ups. Some expect Facebook to implode before it turns sweet sixteen.
No one intended Facebook to cause the problems that it has: not Zuckerberg, its engineers, its early investors or advisors.
We spoke with Roger McNamee, former advisor and early investor, about how the company changed the world in unexpected ways and — in his view — refused to do right by its users in times of trouble.
