Civic-minded technologist Clay Johnson warns that putting Facebook in charge of deciding what’s true isn’t a good way to stop the spread of misinformation. The post Facebook Shouldn’t Bother Policing Fake News—It Should Go Local Instead appeared first on WIRED.
After the election, many have realized that their political opinions may have inadvertently placed them in an echo chamber in which they don’t ever get to hear a unique point of view. As a response, the website ”Hi From The Other Side” was created to help bridge the communication gap between citizens in the U.S. The website states:
“After the election, many of us have talked about getting out of our immediate circles to talk to someone who supported the other side. Not to convince, but to understand. If this sounds like you, sign up here. We’ll try to match you with someone who supported the other candidate and shoot you two an email introducing you to one another. From there, you can find a time to have a phone call, video chat, or even meet in person.”
