I had predicted earlier that Facebook would come under fire this year for inadvertently becoming the tool used to hack democracy. –(link).

So this is what I think Facebook should do:

Give a choice for people who do not want to be manipulated by algorithms and advertisements – a paid for facebook service where the paying customer can control all settings.

Algorithms, where used, will explain the logic behind recommendations.

When a service is free, the consumer is the product.

Facebook blue – $3- $10/month to be connected to your loved ones and business that you like. Advertisement free.
