Welcome to the Facebook Zoo. It’s easy to joke about Facebook, but at the end of the day, livelihoods are at stake along with freedom and democracy. We read about these algorithm changes like they’re some theoretical thing being decided beyond anyone’s control but that’s not the case. There is a company led by people and algorithms programmed by people that have real life consequences. The decisions and their impacts are far from faceless.
Facebook Zoo is the home for these stories. Stories about the human beings pulling the strings of the lives of independent publishers whose audiences are destroyed at the whims of a CEO with unchecked power. This is a place to come air your grievances, connect with others searching for dinghies before the ship capsizes and see the faces of the real casualties of Facebook’s wrath. We want to hear from you. What's your Facebook animal? Are you a gazelle? A zebra? Share your stories here or just use the hashtag #FacebookZoo on any platform.
It probably goes without saying, but FacebooZoo is not authorized, endorsed or sponsored in any way shape or form by Facebook.
