Myanmar: Time for Meta to pay reparations to Rohingya for role in ethical cleansing - Still nothing done 6 years later, the first thing I show people when they ask me why we should stay away from Big Tech and favour alternative models.

Facebook’s algorithms and Meta’s ruthless pursuit of profit created an echo chamber that helped foment hatred of the Rohingya people and contributed to the conditions which forced the ethnic group to flee Myanmar en masse […]. Even Facebook’s internal studies dating back to 2012 indicated that Meta knew its algorithms could result in serious real-world harms. In 2016, Meta’s own research clearly acknowledged that “our recommendation systems grow the problem” of extremism.
