Social media giant Facebook made some unintentional news in early February as part of a major article on the company in Wired, entitled “Inside the Two Years That Shook Facebook -- And the World.” The piece was primarily about the 2016 election, among other things, and recent revelations that foreign operatives had manipulated social networks like Facebook in order to swing the outcome of the election. It also examines how Facebook was able to find two leakers who told a Gizmodo reporter about its news operations in 2016.
