What a week to be working in social media.
If you manage social media channels for your nonprofit, if you are on them in your personal life, or even if you just pay attention to the news, then you have undoubtedly heard about Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistleblower.
The claim is that, as Haugen says, Facebook’s products harm children, stoke division, and weaken our democracy. However, I don't think quitting full stop is an option for many nonprofits, and for many marginalized communities who rely on the platform to communicate and organize.
So where do we go from here?
I recorded this special episode today to answer these questions:
