In Fiery Speech, George Soros Denounces Facebook and Google as a "Menace" to Society

Posted by @DanHinmon, Fri, Jan 26 8:03am

Here’s a summary of the billionaire’s presentation at Davos:

“In broad terms Soros also accused Facebook and Google of deceiving users ‘by manipulating their attention and directing it towards their own commercial purposes’ and noted how they are damaging to youth since they ‘deliberately engineer addiction to the services they provide,’ which ‘can be very harmful, particularly for adolescents.'”

Good luck putting that genie back in the bottle.

But even so, does Soros raise some good points? Should we be more careful about how we use social media, particularly anytime we’re targeting younger audiences?
