Stop Facebook From Encouraging Nasty Content to Increase Profit

Target: Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive Officer of Facebook

Goal: Make necessary changes to stop Facebook from aggravating polarization and divisiveness.

Facebook increases virulent polarization and divisiveness, according to internal studies done by the company. Regardless of these studies, Facebook officials chose to largely shelve the research and avoid making big changes.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a 2018 Facebook presentation screen read, “Our algorithms exploit the human brain’s attraction to divisiveness. If left unchecked,” Facebook would feed users “more and more divisive content in an effort to gain user attention and increase time on the platform.” Despite these findings, Facebook Policy Chief Joel Kaplan said that efforts to encourage civil conversation were too “paternalistic.”

It is evident that Facebook benefits from our harmful attraction to divisive content. Sign below to demand Facebook make significant changes to encourage civil conversation and fact-checking and decrease polarization.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

Facebook’s attempts to connect the world have resulted in great divisiveness. The platform has created a space for conspiracy, misinformation, verbal abuse and violence.

Especially given the United States’ upcoming controversial election, it is essential that Facebook do not support further divisiveness. I demand that you make significant changes to encourage civil conversation and fact-checking and work to decrease polarization.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Mr. Mark Zuckerberg if you take your eyes off for a minute from the stock market, watching Facebook stock go up thanks to the many zombie like groupie idiots that make it possible. You will know what’s going on with your Facebook baby. If you cant understand what’s going on, you can always ask your advisers or private psychologist.
