The curtain continues to stay held back on the overall harm Facebook continues to cause. There are mounting stories online of the hell and havoc from people being harassed and defamed online. Rather than being a tool for togetherness, it has become a weapon of worry and a digital missile of misinformation repeatedly exploding on […]
