Informed Citizen Book Club (EVENING) The Chaos Machine by Max Fisher

The Chaos Machine: The Inside Story of How Social Media Rewired Our Minds and Our World tells the gripping and galling inside story of how Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social network preyed on psychological frailties to create the algorithms that drive everyday users to extreme opinions and, increasingly, extreme actions. As Fisher demonstrates, the companies’ founding tenets, combined with a blinkered focus on maximizing engagement, have led to a destabilized world for everyone.
