The Scapegoat called Meta


When we talk about rising suicide rates in teens because of wrong beauty standards, it’s not that Meta tells us “use Instagram to post pictures of your body, so that other people can rate it”. Meta just offers a platform, and it is up to you how you use it.


Again. People blame Facebook because there are many evil and stupid people on Facebook who use it to promote extremist political views and other things bad in our Society.


I think a big part of the Issues people have with products from Meta are actually issues of our society, and they use Meta as a Scapegoat.
