Facebook’s role in Brexit and the threat to democracy – July 2019 update

In an unmissable talk, UK journalist Carole Cadwalladr digs into one of the most perplexing events in recent times: the UK’s super-close 2016 vote to leave the European Union. Tracking the result to a barrage of misleading Facebook ads targeted at vulnerable Brexit swing voters — and linking the same players and tactics to the 2016 US presidential election — Cadwalladr calls out the “gods of Silicon Valley” for being on the wrong side of history and asks: Are free and fair elections a thing of the past?

The first presentation was given to an official TED conference by the Carole Cadwalladr, The Guardian and Observer , journalist in April 2019

The second TED video – The Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal isn’t about privacy — it’s about power was recorded in July 2019
