Social networks like Facebook are an institution that have lost public trust over the past decade as their importance and influence has become increasingly clear. This loss of confidence presents an opportunity: instead of aspiring to fix social networks, we can imagine and build new tools that support our ability to be good neighbors and good citizens. What could social networks look like if their goal was not maximizing shareholder profit, but seek to strengthen our democracies.
