This is, of course, true. It is also unsurprising. Facebook is a public company that aspires to maximize profits for its shareholders. The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson argues that social media is “attention alcohol” — a product that is fun but addictive, and “unwholesome in large doses” — and the metaphor is even more apt than that: America’s beer, liquor and wine manufacturers and distributors also put profit over people.
