Think Friday: Facebook and Babel
This week we look at the power and influence of Facebook on our lives and what we can do about it.
Facebook has 2.2 billion users rivalling the major world religions, with 1.4 billion people logging in each day. Yesterday, a newspaper article commented on the power Mark Zuckerburg has over the lives of so many people.
In Think Friday we look at the problems of fake news, behaviour modification and issues around privacy. We also look at what we can learn from the story of the tower of Babel in Genesis 11. While not a direct parallel there are key themes around connection and confusion.
I also recommend Zucked for those interested in understanding Facebook and The Tech-wise Family by Andy Crouch which I have previously reviewed here.
Check it out.
