There are lots of theories out there as to how and why Donald Trump is the US President Elect right now. We’ve all heard them. Let me see; Change, Hillary’s emails, Hillary’s unlikability, a revolution of the uninformed, the odds against a 3rd Democratic term, Trump is a non-politician and a breath of fresh air, Americans are desperate.
But how about this one?
It’s Facebook’s Fault.
The argument is based on the fact that today many people rely on only social media for their news and have become rather un-informed these days. They can’t tell the difference between what is actual fact checked news, or just as Mashable described it “a tangled mess of bizarre falsehoods and outdated information used as ammo to help people scream at one another.”
It would seem that Donald Trump thrives in the muck, and maybe he gained advantage the dirtier that this thing got.
