Watch Facebook Burn

Piracy. Disinformation. Surveillance. CYBER is Motherboard’s podcast and reports on the dark underbelly of the internet.

For nearly two decades, Facebook dominated the headlines and the lives of its users. It’s been blamed for genocides, singled out as a conduit for misinformation, and depressed you as you parade past high school acquaintances who seem to be doing so much better than you.

But now its founder Mark Zuckerberg is obsessed with a virtual world no one wants, the company’s shares have fallen 70% from their peak and they’ve lost $800 billion of their market cap.

Are we finally witnessing the end of Facebook?

In this episode of Cyber, Motherboard writer Edward Ongweso Jr. stops by to try and answer the question.
