Roy O’Connor is right: Facebook is not our friend.
My question: So what?
Would we ask our “friends” to spend millions of dollars building data centers, hiring employees, and doing other things that a proper business would do?
Allowing you to connect with your friends is not the same as being your friend.
Building a platform costs money and Facebook charges its users nothing. The Age of the Platform is different on many levels. The need to make money is not one of them.
