Ted Talk Feature: ‘What obligations to social media platforms have to the greater good?’ by Eli Parser

Poignant Ted talk on the power of virtual spaces: “What obligations to social media platforms have to the greater good?” by Eli Pariser.

My take:

I hear you, Eli, but it’s not so easy to do the right thing when the competition is infinitely more resources. These “virtuous” spaces still require resources, and there isn’t a lot of money to be garnered for making people “better off” when most don’t even understand the nature of the problem. There isn’t a centralized body for the internet to redistribute resources for the greater good. It’s quite the opposite online… That said, we’ll keep trying.
