Facebook has found a way to criticize. He began to pay the well-known newspaper for underestimating his mishaps

More or less since the Cambridge affair, Analytica Facebook is under constant criticism from the critics for its privacy policy. Added to this are issues such as insufficient struggle against hate speech and terrorism. However, the platform found a way to reverse this unfavorable PR and began paying the recognized newspaper for texts that curse reality - established the Business Insider .

"What actions Facebook is taking to counter terrorist content" is the title of one of the series of 26 texts that appeared in the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. The 150-year-old newspaper published in March a series of materials on new technologies that discussed how Facebook copes with the challenges posed by technology and society in the 21st century.

Reality gave Zuckerberg an unpleasant sourness.

A few days after the article was published, in which Facebook assured that it had "terrorist content" under control, there was an attack in Christchurch, New Zealand . The killer's live coverage was conducted, and how, on Facebook itself, and video recordings from the event circulated for a long time among users.

Then it was terrible, but it was also grotesque. Just like when Gen. Adam Rutherford translated in the journal, why "fear of technology dominated history". The scientist "refuted" such myths in him that the long-term gazing of the screen badly affects the development of children. He defended this avant-garde thesis as follows:

This area of ​​science may be described by researchers as "rich in opinions, poor in data" (...) We are a technological genre and it has always been this way. Perhaps the speed of change is overwhelming, and what is normal for our children is terrifying for us. But this is the same as it has always been. Being online can now offer us advantages or set traps, but we will only achieve progress if we engage in the ever-changing, but ultimately constantly accompanying relationship with technology - he argued.

After entering the phrase "screen and child development" in Google Scholar pops up over 7 thousand. scientific articles. With a hand on my heart I admit that I have not seen even 10 percent. of them, what I randomly opened, however, came down to the general conclusion that television and computer inhibit normal brain development in children. Usually based on research. Oh, so much for the lack of data.

Not that the Facebook cycle was completely meaningless.

In addition to breakneck theses to defend the platform, you could also find quite valuable materials such as "how to deal with cyberbullying ".

The Daily Telegraph, however, compromised itself by publishing the whole series. It is significant that representatives of the daily and Facebook did not want to talk to BI about their cooperation. Because even sponsored texts have to be able to write with your head.
