Facebook admits social media threat to democracy

Click HERE

democracy is a reflection of the will and choice of the people, and this choice is affected by the wisdom of the people, which is consequently influenced by the information they have access to or which they are exposed to.....herein lies the problem: social media can determine the kind of info that people are exposed to, and hence their decisions when it comes to politics....if we're not careful, social media can hijack democracy and make a mockery of what the people's will meant....

For Qns on regulation and control of social media...

Qn: Consider the view that efficient government is more important than democracy. (Cam. 2011)
