Dark posts and dark times 

​Everyone should read this article about dark posts and Cambridge Analytica, which helped push Brexit, manipulates Facebook only for Republican candidates, and on whose board sits Steve Bannon. It looks like the election was determined by Facebook via fake news and dark posts that tilted toward Trump severely. Please be aware of this as you look at Facebook: you’re being manipulated. I was aware of the fake news thing through the election and I ignored many many posts by wacky left-leaning fake news sources (I obviously wasn’t targeted for alt right messages since Facebook knows my leanings), concentrating on the Washington Post and the New York Times and other legitimate publications. I didn’t know about dark posts though. This is scary. I think Mark Zuckerberg is probably Progressive and did not mean for Facebook to be used in a negative way to throw the election, but this needs to be fought against hard.https://www.google.com/amp/mobile.nytimes.com/2016/11/20/opinion/the-secret-agenda-of-a-facebook-quiz.amp.html
