Broken Code (Doubleday)
Friday, 08 December 2023

Subtitled "Inside Facebook and the Fight to Expose Its Harmful Secrets", this book takes a behind-the-scenes look at the tactics Facebook used to grow its business, and how it altered the way we connect online. Expanding on “The Facebook Files,” his award-winning series for The Wall Street Journal, reporter Jeff Horwitz lays out the architecture of Facebook’s failures, and what the company knew (and often disregarded) about its societal impact.
