The Mark Zuckerberg Manifesto Is a Blueprint for Destroying Journalism

​        ​
A sprawling new manifesto by Zuckerberg, published to Facebook
        on Thursday, should set off new alarm bells for journalists,
        and heighten news organizations' sense of urgency about how
        they--and their industry--can survive in a Facebook-dominated
        world.

Op-ed: Mark Zuckerberg's manifesto is a political trainwreck

acebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has just published a 5,700

        word "letter" on his profile, where he asserts that Facebook
        represents one of history's "great leaps." Though he covers a
        number of topics, what's most interesting is how he positions
        Facebook as a force for political change in the coming years.
        His goals are lofty, sometimes even grandiose.  That's not the
        problem.  The problem is a fundamental contradiction built
        into the way he hopes to create what he calls a "global
        community" by essentially gerrymandering the Internet.
