The political battleground that Facebook has become is harmful to democracy.
That is according to the Victoria, B.C. whistleblower whose revelations of widespread data misuse shook the social media giant earlier this year.
Christopher Wylie told Extraordinary Future 2018 investment conference in Vancouver on Sept. 19 that Facebook’s claim to be a community is an illusion.
Wylie, the former research director for military contractor SCL Group, talked about how the company morphed into an election campaign business and how social media has been weaponized against voters.
He sat down with Blake Corbet, the managing director of PI Financial Corp., at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Listen to part of their candid conversation on this edition of theBreaker.news Podcast.
