What To Do About Facebook: Outside Approaches

Siva Vaidhyanathan, Justin Brookman, Katy Pearce, Ben Tarnoff, David Madden, Shireen Mitchell (facilitator)

This workshop will focus on a variety of external “fixes” for the problems Facebook has generated for democracy, including much stronger consumer privacy protection, antitrust enforcement, and expanded ways of defending human rights organizers and civil society values on Facebook. And we’ll also ask whether anyone is thinking big enough about the scale of Facebook’s power and if/how to rein it in.
