A Rant About Facebook’s Feed Experiments

Charlie Brooker:

In other words, the fine folk at Facebook are so hopelessly disconnected from ground-level emotional reality they have to employ a team of scientists to run clandestine experiments on hundreds of thousands of their “customers” to discover that human beings get upset when other human beings they care about are unhappy.

Great rant about Silicon Valley hubris.
