Is Facebook A Structural Threat To Free Society?

Truthhawk wrote a great post about the power of Facebook.

It reads like a dystopia but the points presented are more real than ever before. Definitely worth a read. Commenters in the HN discussion on that post also mentioned two book recommendations:

  • Neil Postman: Amusing Ourselves to Death - Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business
  • A classic: Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

They quickly were put on my reading list.
