The Facebook Dilemma


Please join the American Constitution Society (ACS) and the Federalist Society for a lunchtime screening of FRONTLINE: The Facebook Dilemma Part II this Thursday, April 25th at 12:10 pm in JG 101. A non-pizza lunch will be served!

FRONTLINE: The Facebook Dilemma Part II investigates a series of warnings to Facebook as it grew into a global empire. A sequence of mounting crises, from the company’s failure to protect users’ data, to the proliferation of “fake news” and disinformation, have raised the question: How has Facebook’s historic success brought about real-world harm?

Following the screening, Lawyering for Change students will lead an interactive discussion exploring Facebook's ability to facilitate the proliferation of disinformation and other themes regarding Facebook's impact on democracy.
