No, they're not. Zuckerberg is still MUH FREEZE PEACH. He has the same attitude as the Sealion troll who posts racist crap and then claims freedom of speech when challenged. He's a piece of shiat. He's just another socially challenged, misogynistic libertarian white male who thinks the world revolves around him. If he wasn't a millionaire (and if he hadn't had rich parents), he'd be another loser whining about how no women want to date him on incel message boards and celebrating Elliot Rogers Memorial Day.

He still has Russian mafia investors, he's done absolutely nothing to stem the tsunami of hate that us posted regularly on his crap site, and thanks to the Facebook comments plug in, you can now view the posts of trolls and Nazis on other websites and there is no way to remove that content because to report it you still go through facebook's "community standards" process.

He hasn't even hired more moderators, which would be the bare minimum of doing anything at all. He's ignored the civil rights study they paid for. It was absolutely clear the day before it dropped that Sandberg thought it was going to be very positive and they were both probably shocked that it was critical of them.

Facebook work culture is toxic, overly white, overly male, and overly straight even compared to google, Microsoft, and amazon.

It was a fun thing when it started, college down through junior high. A lot of that demographic bailed on it long ago. The conservative olds came along and found their comfy echo chamber. And insist you need to read this.

If everyone would just cancel Facebook, the investors, and the employees, this wouldn't be a problem.  I don't interact with any Facebook inveators, employees, or the zuck.  So it is possible.  Just stop using Facebook.  And stop investing in Facebook.  And stop sucking off mega corps.  How farking hard is that?  Or are you all too addicted?

Your exactly right, Facebook is slowly fragmenting into different echo chambers.  Users at this point would become incredibly angry if they were exposed to things outside of their comfort zone.  Eventually the echo chambers will be extremely small and probably individual sized.  I think the Russians will see to this.

They were very smart to buy Instagram.  I am surprised that they have not tried to acquire TikTok.

Because the Chinese government won't sell it....

I think the last paragraph you wrote is what really bothers you. You should have stated that first, then hit post.
