Recommended Read: Facebook Executives Shut Down Efforts to Make the Site Less Divisive

#Facebook is a classic example of "Just because you CAN, doesn't necessarily mean you SHOULD" in technology. Technology should be created to assist, improve or enhance the lives of people, with appropriate consideration for the consequences of it's implementation, both positive and negative.

Today we are witnessing some of the results of these decisions.
