Haven’t deleted your Facebook account yet? Uh, get on it. The election-rigging, data-mining, privacy-violating advertising service has become a literal threat to modern civilization, and if that’s somehow not enough to sway you, it’s time to check out Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, a blistering book by former Facebook investor Roger McNamee that explains how an amoral Mark Zuckerberg unleashed a social network that rakes in billions by cashing in on your browsing history even as it promotes bigotry, ignorance, and violence. McNamee’s in Portland to read from Zucked, and to discuss how Facebook got this bad—and what we can do make it better.
