Facebook Employees Asked Mark Zuckerberg If They Should Try to Stop a Donald Trump Presidency 

Another reminder: Facebook is not an open forum. Facebook actively monitors, adjusts, and (possibly) censors your Timeline as they see fit. Your information, likes, wants, and interests are goods to be traded without your benefit. There is a distinction between a social network where the information is disseminated in a bottom-up fashion and a newspaper where information comes from top-down. This distinction can (and does) affect the perception of the network’s users (the “Echo Chamber” effect), so, despite the politics implied, morality and ethicality dictate that Facebook should leave the Timeline meddling to certified Gallifreyans–even when politics are (not) involved.

This week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared to publicly denounce the political positions of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign during the keynote speech of the company’s annual F8 developer conference.
