Facebook co-founder says it’s time to break up the social media company; feels disappointed in himself for letting the Facebook News Feed algorithm empower nationalist leaders.
Christopher Hughes co-founded and served as spokesman for Facebook, with Harvard roommates Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin, and Andrew McCollum.
Hughes was publisher and editor-in-chief of The New Republic from 2012 to 2016.
Hughes is also a co-chair of the Economic Security Project, which is a network committed to advancing the debate on unconditional cash and basic income in the United States.
Hughes has led the Economic Security Project’s work to rewrite federal and state tax codes to create a monthly tax credit for Americans most in need, a policy which would create a guaranteed income for working people in the United States.
