Online circles getting riskier

Microsoft says online behavior is getting worse
https://www.cnet.com/news/microsoft-research-shows-online-social-circles...

Also involved, Facebook...

From a 12/10 BBC news article on
the yellow vest protests we learned
that Facebook is prioritizing LOCAL:

"... coincided with a change in Facebook's algorithm.
According to Buzzfeed News, in January this year the site
began to prioritise local networks and posts from family and
friends - leading to an explosion in popularity for such
regional groups"
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46480867

So, in 2011 we saw Arab Facebook Revolution and now,
in 2018, France has its Facebook-local groups organizing
and recently organizing the yellow-vest protests.
