Mark Zuckerberg Backtracks On Post Election Comments

I disagree with Zuck on this one. Don't flatter your self Mark, Facebook didn't influence a damn thing, and will never influence a damn thing (unless we are talking memes). Seriously, this is the same as a Kardashian claiming they "broke the internet."

After the election, I made a comment that I thought the idea misinformation on Facebook changed the outcome of the election was a crazy idea. Calling that crazy was dismissive and I regret it. This is too important an issue to be dismissive. But the data we have has always shown that our broader impact -- from giving people a voice to enabling candidates to communicate directly to helping millions of people vote -- played a far bigger role in this election.
