UNFRIEND: 'Zucked,' author Roger McNamee's new book, explores the insidious nature of the company that destroyed the Bay Area (and democracy, and truth, etc.).

Roger McNamee, is a Silicon Valley insider, venture capitalist and musician. Now he can add “author” to his list of bonafides. An early and enthusiastic adopter and investor in Facebook, McNamee has since changed his tune when it comes to the social network. His critiques will be familiar to anyone who’s followed Facebook in the news over the past few years. McNamee has concerns about privacy issues, the rampant spread of disinformation, and the use of the platform to sow political division. In his new book, Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, challenges the new normal of constant connection.
