As Elizabeth Warren declares that Facebook should be broken up, evelyn douek says that it isn’t enough. The New York Times quotes an op-ed by douek:
“If we’re worried about Russia or other foreign powers using Facebook and other social media platforms to influence elections — as Sen. Elizabeth Warren mentions when making her case for breakup — then we also need to acknowledge that these influence campaigns are often sophisticated, cross-platform operations that require well-resourced, expert and coordinated responses. No one has made a good case for how breakup and competition would aid these efforts.”
