Donald Trump (and maybe also Cambridge Analytica) have ruined Facebook.

We always knew that Facebook wasn’t the product. We were. Our information is used for advertisements, but maybe it’s also a bit more nefarious than that. With a relatively small pool of paid participants, Cambridge Analytica managed to get the data of 50 million Facebook users and used that information for extremely targeted, and false, advertisements which may have swayed the 2016 election. Facebook denies it impacted votes, but isn’t this a strange argument to make while trying to sell advertisements on the site? Either way, Facebook is bad and it’s Donald Trump’s fault.
