‘Peddling in an addictive drug called anger’: Steve Jobs’ former lieutenant compared Facebook to companies selling cigarettes and opioids

A close adviser of the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs said Facebook peddles in anger, and compared it to selling drugs of cigarettes. “It’s just like tobacco, it’s no different than the opioids,” Joanna Hoffman said at the CogX conference this week, according to CNBC. Hoffman, a member of the original Macintosh team, added that some parts of Facebook are “destroying the very fabric of democracy.” Facebook has come under fire recently for not taking down a post by President Trump about the George Floyd protests reading “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Visit Business Insider’s homepage
