Ex-Pres Sean Parker: Facebook Made to Exploit Human ‘Vulnerability’

Facebook’s founders knew they were creating something addictive that exploited “a vulnerability in human psychology” from the outset, according to founding president Sean Parker. Parker, whose stake in Facebook made him a billionaire, criticized the social networking giant at an Axios event in Philadelphia this week. Now the founder and chair of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, Parker took the time to provide some insight into the early thinking at Facebook at a time when social media companies face intense scrutiny from lawmakers over their power and influence.
