Facebook wants to be everyone’s daily newspaper.
That’s worked well for Facebook but not the rest of us.
Mark Zuckerberg made this ambition clear in 2013, a year after Facebook went public, when he announced a redesign of its centerpiece News Feed.
“What we’re trying to do is give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper we can,” he proclaimed.
Eight years later a majority of Americans — 53%, according to Pew Research Center — turn to Facebook and other social-media for news.
