Whistleblower Frances Haugen claims that the issue around Facebook allegedly knowingly causing harm is due to a conflict of interest between their growth in revenue and engagement and the public interest. In 2018 Facebook introduced an algorithm that relates to how content is offered to users, specifically choosing to show whatever type of content the user engaged with the most in the past.

Affordable, Accessible, and Relevant University Degrees:

But are elite institutions really focussed on improving “society as a whole,” at a price tag exceeding a quarter of a million dollars per student? Or are they in fact a highly exclusive destination for the ultra-wealthy?
