I am trying to imagine how things could get worse for Facebook. I’m having difficulty. Of one thing I am certain, however, things cannot possibly get better without there being some sort of transparency mechanism which has a strong independent element built in. There have been just too many ex post facto hand wringing apologies. We still don’t know anything about how, for example, their so-called “Safety Advisory Board” works, yet we do know that at least one of its members – Childnet International – was recently rewarded with a grant of £500,000. What are we to make of that? For more see an old blog of mine.
